A Note From The Executive Director

Your donations made a huge impact for animals in 2023! The past year was a huge year for Friends of Front Street. In addition to adding staff and redesigning the website, we launched a volunteer initiative to showcase adoptable pets at Front Street, raised over $140,000 at fundraising events like Tails at Twilight and Paws to Party, and were awarded $25,000 from Sacramento County to support lifesaving veterinary assistance for pets in the community. Your donations supported the spay/neuter and wellness care of community cats, veterinary care for pets both in and outside the Front Street Shelter, and rescue placement for pets in need. The programs you support touched the lives of over 2,700 animals in 2023. We are so grateful for you and your generous heart for animals.


I hope this update helps demonstrate how Friends of Front Street is working to use your donations to provide for the health and well-being of pets and their people in our Sacramento community. We appreciate your trust in us to deploy your donations to the best effect in the service of our mission, and hope you will celebrate with us all that our Front Street community has accomplished!
