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
April 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.
“Look, it’s the cat signal!”
We’re excited to announce that thanks to you, we’ve been able to create, train and outfit a new volunteer team – the Kitten Connection! These dedicated volunteers hit the streets, backyards and alleyways, responding to calls from the community when kittens are in need. They support mother cats while they’re nursing their kittens, and when old enough, bring the kittens to the shelter for foster or adoption. This team provides food, formula, traps, carriers, heat discs and much more, all of which was made possible by you!
Not your average stray
Sometimes we are called to help animals other than dogs and cats. In this case, a rooster, later to be named Captain Jack Sparrow, came to us with a missing eye with a badly infected eye socket. He was in rough shape overall, and you can see how scraggly he was. That is until our amazing donors stepped in and allowed us to provide the vet care needed to get him into an adopted home. A short while later, he’s gone from pathetic to majestic – just look at those tail feathers!
Thanks again for all you do!
