Adoptable Pet of the Week


Rita is a stellar pooch with a great personality! She is 12-months-old and is a mixed-breed. She loves to run and play but will always come back to you to be petted. She gets along with other dogs, but definitely likes to have her alone time as well. Rita is curious about cats and will probably need work with getting know them. She likes kids and knows how to be gentle with even the smallest of children. Come in and visit Rita today!

To meet Rita and other available animals needing loving homes, visit the Santa Barbara Humane Society at 5399 Overpass Road, or call 805-964-4777. Shelter hours are Monday – Saturday 10AM-4:30PM. To check out more adoptable pets, visit: SBHS
