Friends of Front Street is the partner nonprofit of the City of Sacramento Front Street Animal Shelter. Our programs support pets and their people both inside the Front Street shelter and in the larger community!


Your Gift Matters

Our partnership with the Front Street Animal Shelter provides funding for shelter needs to supplement the budget provided by the City of Sacramento, but the need (and our support) doesn’t stop there! Your donations enable us to provide both funds and administrative support for collaborative programs which expand the reach of Front Street’s animal welfare efforts in the Sacramento community.

Adoption Process

  1. Visit the shelter or view the animals online to find one you’d like to meet! (We recommend having more than one animal you’re interested in meeting, in case your first choice is adopted by someone.)
  2. Join the electronic waitlist using your phone and follow the instructions on signs in front of and throughout the shelter.
  3. The waitlist opens at 11:30 am and you must be at the shelter to join. Customers will be helped in the order they join the waitlist. If you need assistance adding yourself to the waitlist, just ask our front desk staff for help!
