Adoptable Pet of the Week


Olga is a very sweet 5-year-old female terrier mix dog, looking for that special person or family to give her a lifelong loving home. Olga is sweet as sugar, great with children, babies, grown-ups and with dogs of all shapes and sizes. She is very well behaved, and is a complete and total love muffin. She loves kisses, walks, and napping. Olga spent Thanksgiving in her foster home with people coming and going, and she was calm and happy (and she didn’t beg at the table, even though the rest of the dogs did). Olga will be a really wonderful companion for that very lucky person or family that adopts her. It is time for Olga to go to her very own “home for the holidays”!

K-9 PALS is providing sponsorship for this wonderful dog. If you are interested in adopting Olga, call 805-681-4332, at Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Rd., Santa Barbara, CA, during business hours, Mon-Fri 9 – 4:45, Sat 10 – 4. Olga can also be seen with her foster mom around town and at outreach events, (that is, until she gets adopted).

To view more photos and information on other dogs available for adoption, go to the K-9 PALS website: K9PALS. K-9 PALS provides free dog behavior training sessions for people who have adopted a dog from any local shelter, rescue organization or humane society.
