Our shelter needs your help to raise critical funds for animals both inside the shelter and out in our community. From lifesaving surgeries, medicine, food, supplies and more – your support gives shelter animals the opportunity to find homes and have happy futures. Not only that, but you support animals at risk of surrender or euthanasia when their owners can't afford vet care. You also fund spay/neuter surgeries for community cats to prevent litters born on the streets, and support our free vaccination and microchip clinics. We're also able to provide essential care to pets of owners experiencing homelessness, and to conduct forensic investigations to prosecute animal cruelty - all thanks to you. If you can lend a hand, your help will change the lives of animals in need and make our community a better place.
Organized in 2001, the Friends of Front Street Shelter is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to saving and improving animal lives in the Sacramento area. We are proud to work in partnership with the Front Street Animal Shelter and other community organizations to assist them in their missions to help animals in our community. Donation dollars provide advanced medical care for sick or injured animals, sustain the foster and rescue program , support programs and events that increase adoptions, and help ensure that those who abuse animals in our community will be prosecuted.
