Not only will a variety of the latest styles of dogs be available for adoption, at all three county shelters – Santa Barbara, Lompoc, and Santa Maria– but dog “shoppers” will be able to take advantage of exciting discounts on adoption fees: 20% off all month long or, for those who shop early, October 1st through the 6th, 50% off the ‘ticket’ price!

The normal fee for a dog is $110, which includes all applicable vaccinations, a complimentary health exam, spay or neuter, as well as a free bag of Science Diet dog food. This October qualified adopters can get all of that for the low price of $88; a 20% savings. Early bird adopters who come to one of our three locations from October 1st through October 6th will receive first pick and Early Bird pricing of 50% off; — a savings of $55!

Qualified adopters will have a chance, during this special promotion, to make a statement by adopting the latest fashion – a shelter dog. Animal Services’ Fall Collection offers a variety of styles of dogs: big or little, white or black, thin or fat, and more. If you are energetic and athletic we have sleek, smooth, and spunky dogs that will meet your every need or challenge. If you are more the couch potato type, Animal Services has a dog that will keep your feet warm or snuggle with you under the blankets. Whether you are looking for a sporty model or something more plush and comfortable, we have it all.

Although the Fall Collection is on view now, there will be a special showing of selected dogs from the collection on October 6th, from 11am-2pm, at our Adoptable Dog Showcase at Valley Pets, 225 McMurray Rd., Suite G, in Buellton. “Model shelter dogs” will be on view for interested parties, along with merchandise and family fun. Dogs will be available for adoption and on site associates will assist shoppers in finding just the right match.

The purchase of a Santa Barbara County dog license is required with each adoption. This license serves as identification for your dog as well as their ticket home should they ever get brought back to the shelter.

Visit one of the three Santa Barbara County Animal Services locations to pick up your favorite dog while the fall models are in stock. The Santa Maria Animal Center is located at 548 W. Foster Rd. in Santa Maria, the Santa Barbara Shelter is at 5473 Overpass Rd. in Santa Barbara, and the Lompoc Animal Shelter is at 1501 W. Central Ave. in Lompoc. The shelters are open for adoptions from 10am-4:30pm Monday through Friday and 10am-3:30pm on Saturdays. Come visit, using our “dressing room” yards to get acquainted, and let our volunteer sales associates help you find the perfect Fall Piece to make your life complete!
