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, including:

  • Transporting sick or injured stray animals that were picked up by the animal services officers to the emergency vet

  • Rescuing animals locked inside hot vehicles and from abusive, cruel, or negligent conditions

  • Assisting stray dogs, whether they are friendly or aggressive, that roam freely on the street, on public property, or at a citizen's residence

  • Administering a rabies control program

  • Helping citizens resolve nuisance problems, such as dogs barking excessively and dogs defecating or urinating on other people's property

  • Investigating dog and cat bite complaints

  • Assisting other agencies such as the County of Sacramento Animal Care and Regulation, the Sacramento SPCA, the police department, the fire department, and the California Highway Patrol

  • Educating pet owners on the importance of spaying or neutering their dogs and cats

In partnership with our community, we keep lost pets safe so that they can hopefully be reunited with their owner or adopted into a new family.
