Adoptable Pet of the Week


Calm, sweet Ruby will make someone a very nice and easy companion, and will transition into a new home with little effort. At nine years and 47 lbs, she’s very attentive and obedient. Ruby knows “sit”, “down”, and “shake/give paw”.

She has been in a foster home and demonstrated that she has very good manners including being house-trained. She loves to play ball, especially with the squeaky ones. Ruby has been on a few off-sites with volunteers and enjoys all the extra attention. She gets along well with other dogs, but does not do well with cats.


Recently, we learned that Ruby loves the beach. She loves being in the water. We also heard that she makes a nice “pillow” in the sand when playtime is over.

If Ruby sounds like the perfect dog for you, stop by the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road, and complete a no-obligation adoption application and get it approved. Read more about Ruby and view photos at

Do you love dogs, but can’t have a pet? Volunteer at the shelter or for K-9 PALS or make a donation to K-9 PALS to help pay for the medical expenses and prescription foods for the homeless dogs of Santa Barbara County.
