Penny is a sweet, adorable two-year-old, 40 lb Pointer mix who emulates an “ All American Dog”. Penny gets along with all dogs, does well at off-site events with crowds, confusion, noise, and she is even assessed as good with grade-school kids and maybe your cat. Penny likes playing with balls, ropes, people, or even by herself. She seems eager to learn and was extremely attentive (treat-motivated) to her handler at recent training sessions.


Penny is searching for his forever home while waiting at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter. K- 9 PALS is the volunteer, non-profit organization that promotes adoptions, provides humane care, and acts as advocate for the dogs at the Shelter to eliminate euthanasia so that every adoptable dog will

have a chance for a loving forever home. See more photos and learn how you can adopt Penny at

Dog-viewing hours are Mon.-Fri., 9 a.m.-4:45 p.m.; Sat., 10 a.m.-4 p.m. All K-9 PALS dogs are spayed/neutered and have current vaccinations. All adoptions come with FREE group dog-training sessions at the shelter.

Do you love dogs, but can’ t have a pet? Volunteer with K-9 PALS or make a donation to sponsor a dog while it waits for its forever home. Volunteer orientations are held twice a month on Saturdays. For details about volunteering and orientation schedule, visit or call 681-4369.
