Front Street Animal Shelter prepares for the busiest week of the year

Front Street Animal Shelter prepares for the busiest week of the year

Shelters across the country are bracing themselves for the increase of stray animals that escape the safety of their homes in fear of fireworks.  While July 4th may be a time for BBQ’s, fireworks and homemade ice cream, it is less thrilling for the family pet. Loud booms and the smell of acrid smoke is often enough to instill panic in some animals, who will do anything to escape the noise and perceived threat.  Area pet lovers are encouraged to take some precautions in advance of the big day and the Front Street Animal Shelter is offering simple, easy and affordable solutions to keep our four legged friends safe.

Local community challenged to #EmptySacShelters over the course of one weekend

Sacramento, CA (October 14, 2013)—Later this week, shelters from around the country will collaboratively attempt to place thousands of homeless animals into new homes over the course of just one weekend for the ASPCA’s Mega Match-a-thon initiative.

Four local animal shelters have joined the initiative and are calling on the Sacramento community to #EmptySacShelters from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, October 18 to Sunday, October 20.

The local effort, aptly named the Empty Our Shelters Project, will provide individuals and families the opportunity to be a part of something big by helping to end homelessness for animals found in shelters. That weekend, participating local animal shelters will allow Sacramentans to adopt any animal from any shelter for just $20!
