April 15th, 2021

It’s National Animal Care and Control Appreciation Week!

This week we honor these front-line heroes by sharing a story of how officers in Sacramento, California, are doing their part to save lives - of both the two and four-legged kind. The chief of animal services for the Front Street Animal Shelter, Jace Huggins, tells us about a partnership with their local public health department.

To all of you working in the area of field services, on behalf of everyone at Best Friends, we’d like to say thank you for the work you do every day!

chief of field services, Front Street Animal Shelter

Currently the Chief of Field Services for the City of Sacramento’s Front Street Shelter, Jace considers himself a lifelong animal welfare professional, from bathing dogs at his Aunt’s grooming shop to being an intensive care unit technician at the renowned UC Davis Vet med teaching hospital. He never imagined landing in animal law enforcement, but he has found that sweet spot that allows him to help animals, shape change in his community, and bring justice to those animals who need it most. His passion lies in outreach, education, and investigations.
