Adoptable Pet of the Week


Otis is a 14-month-old Chihuahua mix who is very sweet once he warms up to you. He is a neutered male and weighs about 8 pounds. The shelter staff thinks he would be best with a family who has no small kids.

K-9 PALS is the all-volunteer, no-kill nonprofit organization in Santa Barbara County whose mission is to provide veterinary care, assistance, adoptions, and rescue for dogs of all breeds who are abandoned in shelters. If you aren’t looking to adopt right now, you can help by donating to K-9 PALS to help provide for the much needed veterinary care, medications, food, training, and much more for homeless and abandoned dogs like Truffle.

K-9 PALS has monthly community outreach events at the Pet House on Calle Real, Petco 5 Points, and other places around the area on weekends. K-9 PALS provides four FREE dog behavior training sessions for dog adopters, so please contact K-9 PALS if you want to take advantage of this great offer when you adopt a dog from any local shelter.
