Give yourself the gift of a new dog, cat, bunny friend for the holidays !

Hundreds of homeless, but hopeful, animals awaiting their holiday gift—a loving family and a new home—will be available for adoption from Santa Barbara County shelters during the annual “Home for the Holidays” adoption fair. They are all possible pets that, through no fault of their own, are homeless and hoping for a holiday miracle.

This open house event allows the public to come get to know the adoptable pets at our local shelters. For some people, it’s a GREAT time to adopt a pet because they get to spend a few days home with them before going back to work.

Every cat and dog offered for adoption during the “Home for the Holidays” event is vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and has had a medical and behavioral evaluation. The cost to adopt a dog during the adoption fair is only $65.00; all cats are only $40.00; kittens are 2 for 1. All bunnies adopted will receive a welcome home gift basket.

As an added incentive, each donor will be entered into a random drawing with a few lucky donors wining a raffle prize. Donations of $100 or more to K-9 PALS will receive an engraved dedication sign to be mounted on our kennels.
