Shelter Pets Give Good Love!

Rupert the Shih-Tzu was abandoned in the streets of Sacramento and brought to the Front Street Animal Shelter by a Police officer.  He was suffering a severe skin infection and bronchitis...

Meanwhile, in another part of town, Victoria saw his picture online and drove immediately to meet him.  It was love at first sight and they lived happily ever after.

You too can have a happily ever after story by adopting a pet in need at your local shelter, or making a donation.  

To pay it forward, Rupert poses and Shanti Lounge donates the graphic design, photography and printing for Rupert's Super Duper Calendar each year since 2013 ! Profits go directly to Front Street Shelter.   You can purchase the calendar during holiday season at:

-RIRE Boutique  (All Locations: Davis, Midtown and Oak Park)

-Shanti Lounge

-At the Front Street Shelter Kiosk during select events.

For adoptable pets please visit the shelter website:

Rupert and Victoria also are pet therapy volunteers through Lend A Heart, a non-profit, all volunteer organization that connects people with the unconditional love of therapy pets.  To inquire about their programs and schedule pet therapy visits:
