Calling all canines…High-tail it to the Mobile Pop-Up Dog Park in Midtown in August

Calling all canines…High-tail it to the Mobile Pop-Up Dog Park in Midtown in August

Presented by the Midtown Business Association, plans are afoot to have the mobile Pop-Up Dog Park set-up in a shady area adjacent to the Midtown Farmers Market on Saturday, August 20, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Back by popular demand, the Pop-Up Dog Park will also be accompanied by a number of special canine-friendly activities such as having the Front Street Animal Shelter on-site to promote pet adoptions and offer microchip services, volunteers providing obedience training, and interested vendors offering gift giveaways, selling pet-friendly “swag” items and more.

Created to increase canine-friendly interaction and help to nurture a strong sense of community in the heart of Midtown, the portable, sustainable and FREE Pop-Up Dog Park uses portable picket fencing and a double-gate system to ensure the dogs are secure inside the mobile structure. Due to the structural limits of the fencing, the Pop-Up Dog Park is designed for dogs 30 pounds or less.

Front Street Shelter's Pet Food Pantry Empty!

The Front Street Animal Shelter provides 3,000 - 5,000 pounds of pet food to pet owners in need every week. Since establishing the program three years ago this is the first time the pantry has been empty. The program is 100% donation based and provides pet food to thousands of Sacramento residents. The resources are available to all Sacramento residents with the goal of helping keeping animals in their original homes and out of the shelter.

If you are interested in donating to the pet pantry program the Front Street Shelter is located at 2127 Front Street Sacramento, CA 95818. Hours of operation: Wednesday - Sunday from 9am - 5pm.

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.
