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. 

Turning Trash into Treasure

Turning Trash into Treasure

It’s known that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, but this summer’s Art of the Dumpster exhibit takes this idea to another level.

Commissioned by Power Inn Alliance and curated by the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, this collaborative project showcases the talents of 10 local emerging artists on a very unusual canvas – massive 22 foot long dumpsters. The result: colorful, abstract, interactive, larger-than-life pop-art masterpieces.
