Adoptable Pet of the Week


Yeller is a yellow Lab mix just turned nine, but has the good health and energy of a younger dog. During recent doggie daycare sessions at a volunteer’s home, we learned that he is calm, obedient, affectionate, and low maintenance. Yeller is fully house-trained and is happy to enter his crate and sleep for a few hours until break time, when we have found him playing with the younger house pup or even playing by himself. He’s always up for a walk or a car ride to your appointments as he’s very social with adults and kids.


If Yeller sounds like the perfect dog for you, stop by the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road, and complete a no-obligation adoption application to meet Yeller. He could also benefit from a foster home as the noise and activity at the shelter cause Yeller to be anxious. Read more about Yeller and view photos and video at

Do you love dogs, but can’t have a pet? Volunteer at the shelter or for K-9 PALS or make a donation to K-9 PALS to help pay for the medical expenses and prescription foods for the shelter dogs. For details about volunteering at the County Animal Services, Santa Barbara Animal Shelter, call (805) 681-4397.
