This holiday season for the first time ever Front Street Animal Shelter and Sacramento Ballet are partnering to bring the warm and fuzzies (puppies that is) to Sacramento this holiday season.

Once again Sacramento Ballet presents its classic The Nutcracker, December 6-21, 2014 at the Community Center Theater, the run will feature over 500 children from the community.

This year as an extra special treat each performance will star an adoption eligible dog from Front Street Animal Shelter, and adoption experts will be present after the show to allow for a lucky family to take that furry celebrity home for the holidays.

Sacramento Ballet and Front Street Animal Shelter are excited to promote the holiday spirit together. Check out a great photo gallery via Front Street’s Facebook page.
