We’re committed to assisting the Front Street Animal Shelter achieve its goal of saving the lives of all stray, abandoned, and abused animals who come through its doors. We support the many programs and activities needed to care for and find loving, forever homes for homeless animals. And we support causes that improve the lives of pets throughout the region
March 2021 – A look at what your donations supported!
One of the most rewarding things about our work is seeing animals overcome tremendous challenges, and feeling immense gratitude for you, our donors, who make it all possible.
Honey Gets Healthy
Honey had the worst case of bladder stones we’ve ever seen. She also had severe dental disease, a heart murmur, and was very skinny. But thanks to you, she received emergency surgery, extensive dental work, and was sent to a local rescue to regain her strength. Her surgeon was concerned she might become incontinent from damage caused by the stones, but that wasn’t the case! She’s also put on some much needed weight, and has officially found her forever home!
Sticks and stones (and arrows)
Garfield was brought to us after being shot with an arrow in his neighborhood in Sacramento. We were able to locate his family, who were devastated that someone would do such a thing to their beloved cat, and were even more concerned because they couldn’t afford the emergency surgery. Luckily for them, and Garfield, you were there to save his life, and after a speedy recovery, he’s back home!
Expanding our impact, sharing the love
Speaking of animals in our community needing help – there are many, and not all of them come into the shelter. That’s why we are so excited to assist a local nonprofit, 4RFriends, which is dedicated to helping those community animals and the humans who are doing their best to care for them. We are purchasing equipment that they need to complete their mobile veterinary clinic, which will serve countless underserved animals. Their lead veterinarian, Dr. Jean, asked us to say a special thanks to you, our donors, for making it possible. The dog she is holding is Milly, who was abandoned at a homeless camp. The campers took care of her until Dr. Jean arrived, and after some time in foster care Milly is being adopted by a veterinary tech.
Thanks again for all you do!
