Front Street Animal Shelter opens free pet food bank


The Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento is offering a weekly pet food bank free of charge as a way to help families strapped for cash because of inflation. Shannon O’Neill doesn’t have a dog of her own, but she loves animals, which is why she volunteers for the shelter at its drive-thru pet food bank. “The first reason I’m here is so I can have dog energy in my life,” O’Neill said. The shelter’s pet food bank offers all of the essentials for free, including dog and cat food, leashes, collars and carriers. “A time like this when people are low on money, it’s very helpful,” O’Neill said. With inflation impacting the price of just about everything, Front Street says pet food is no exception. A Front Street spokesperson said one of the main reasons people surrender their pets is because they can’t afford to feed them. While some people pick up for themselves, or friends and family, others drop off donations, a cycle of giving that keeps the pet food bank up and running every week for those in need. The Front Street Animal Shelter pet food bank operates every Wednesday from 10 am to noon. There are also two other shelters in the Sacramento area offering free pet food banks.
