One question that's been on many people's minds during the pandemic is, "What happens to the dogs and cats looking for their forever homes?" Finally, business is slowly but surely beginning to return to normal to help these animals find loving, permanent homes. 

According to KCRA, the Sacramento SPCA brought back its adoptions by appointment only. The adoption process now begins by filling out an online application at, and a staff member will then reach out to prospective pet parents. 

Since the shelters closed down, volunteers fostered the animals at Sacramento SPCA. 

Each shelter will have its own reopening process and timeline. According to the City of Sacramento website, Front Street Animal Shelter is currently preparing for reopening "in alignment with County Public Health orders" to ensure the safety of the public and animals looking for homes. 

Stevie was born blind and found herself at Front Street after being dumped in a park at 2 weeks old. Despite being a puppy, she was getting over looked because of her special needs. Luckily for Stevie, her adopters were searching for a special dog and jumped at the chance to meet her. It was a pawfect match and she has since been living the good life in her furever home! ❤️-- #teamfrontstreet #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #savepetlives #animalrescue #adoptdontshop #rescuedogsrock #sactowndogs #sacramento #california
