The Best Friends Podcast Episode 59
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!
