Do you find yourself looking for love in all the wrong places? This Valentine’s Day, look no further. Whether you are looking for a flirtatious feline, a playful puppy, or a serene senior, your perfect match is waiting. Santa Barbara County Animal Services has hundreds of eligible animals waiting for their chance at love and you are sure to meet your match. February 11, 2012 through February 18, 2012, Santa Barbara County Animal Services is hoping to make it a little easier for you to find your perfect pet by discounting adoption fees. For this week long event cat adoption fees will be reduced to $14 and dog adoption fees will be reduced to $41. During this event you can adopt two rabbits or guinea pigs for the price of one. These cuddly companions come spayed or neutered, vaccinated, vet checked, and receive a complimentary bag of Science Diet Food.

Valentine’s Day is a great time to open your heart to a homeless pet. Having a pet in your life has been proven to bring happiness, decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, all while reducing blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and loneliness. Santa Barbara County Animal Services has dogs, cats, and rabbits in all shapes, colors, and sizes to give you just the health boost your heart needs.

If you are not looking for love, Santa Barbara County Animal Services reminds you that this is a great time to show your pet how much you love them by licensing them. A license is your pet’s ticket home! You can also show your pet your love by getting them a microchip. For only $20 you can provide your best friend with a permanent form of identification and increase their chances of making it home should they ever get lost.

Santa Barbara County Animal Services has hundreds of animals that will be calling to you, “Take Me… I’m Yours.” You can pick the love of your life by visiting one of our three county shelters in Santa Maria at 548 W. Foster Rd, in Lompoc at 1501 W. Central Ave, and in Santa Barbara at 5473 Overpass Rd. All three shelters are open Monday through Friday from 10am until 4:30pm and Saturdays from 10am until 4pm. Make it a date; adopt a pet today!
