As you settle into your homes for another holiday celebration, please consider those who do not have a home to go to – the dogs, cats, and rabbits living in Santa Barbara County’s animal shelters. If there is space in your life and your heart, this is the perfect time of year to give the gift of a loving home to an abandoned pet.

Some of the dogs at the Santa Barbara shelter have been there for two years or more. We have some long-timer cats and rabbits too. Don’t they deserve life with a loving family, rather than sitting day after day in a cage, hoping for that forever home?

Animal Services is making it easy to adopt this holiday season by offering deep discounts on adoption fees: $50 for dogs, $25 for adult cats, $40 for kittens or two for $75, and $15 for bunnies. You won’t find better holiday sale prices!

The promotion is available from December 15-24, at all three county animal shelters. We are open for adoption from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday (till noon on the 24th). Come on our kick-off day for additional fun, with a bake sale, a visit from Santa Paws, and other goodies!

And consider this: The gift of a home is a gift of love, and the love you give will most certainly come back to you.
