This is a great family and dog friendly event which benefits the homeless and abandoned dogs of Santa Barbara County. You’ll want to bring the kids – and your dogs - and enjoy the fun. All proceeds will go to support the K-9 PALS Medical Fund for the homeless and abandoned dogs of Santa Barbara County.

K-9 PALS is the all-volunteer non- profit organization that provides medical care, support, food, medications, dog behavior training, foster homes, adoption promotions and advocacy for the dogs of Santa Barbara County Shelters, with the goal for every adoptable dog to have a chance for a loving home.

This year’s festival includes dog agility exhibitions, dog behavior demonstrations, K9 police dogs, lots of wonderful dogs for adoption from local rescue groups and shelters, exhibits by local businesses and organizations with information about people, pet and eco- friendly products and services, live music and great food.

Highlighting the day of festivities is the Great Ball Drop. At approximately 2:00 pm, the Santa Barbara Fire Department will hoist 1000 tennis balls up into the air and drop them over the specially designed prize board. This year’s Great Ball Drop Grand Prize is worth more than $750, and 30 other prizes are all worth more than $150 and all are donated from local businesses. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase prior to the event - 1 ticket for $10 or 10 tickets for $90. Contact info@k-9pals.org for more information.
