The Front Street Animal Shelter does far more than caring for lost and abandoned animals in our community. We provide a variety of services that protect both citizens and animals.

We also keep lost pets safe and sound so that they can hopefully be reunited with their owner or adopted into a new family.

We've told you before about the dramatic turnaround of the City of Sacramento's Front Street shelter. Once a dark and deadly place for dogs, it's much safer and happier these days, thanks to an upbeat staff and an extended network of hundreds of volunteers, fosters, and local rescues.

Among the programs the City's Animal Care Services has instituted: a community spay-neuter program and a pet food bank.
