Front Street Animal Shelter dedicates play yard to the dogs

Made possible by the kindness of generous donors, the Front Street Animal Shelter is proud to announce its spectacular dog enrichment play yard. Located at the main entrance of the shelter, this area will be dedicated to providing a private place for shelter dogs to play, socialize and receive much needed attention and training.*

Dogs in a shelter environment often do not respond well to their surroundings, but by offering an outlet for play, most will flourish. Repurposing an existing area, previously covered in ivy and unused, the play yard adds a colorful and whimsical space. Several pieces of agility equipment are included in the project.

Existing animal topiary is now a focal point that was previously overlooked and under-appreciated.  The landscape work was performed by Earth Expressions, a local Sacramento contractor.

A dedication ceremony for our two legged friends will be held on Sunday, April 12th at 11:30 a.m. for anyone wishing to see it and celebrate the work of the Front Street Animal Shelter.

The dog enrichment park has been made possible by Susan and Rick Manuel, Rose Sidhu and Christine Sidhu in memory of Louis and Theresa Sidhu, Jim Nelson and Barbara Sidhu-Nelson as a way to honor their deep appreciation and love of animals. Their hope is that the enrichment park will provide years of enjoyment to our shelter dogs and in a small way, the memory of their loved ones will live on.
