Adoptable Pet of the Week



Rocket is a very friendly, handsome 4 yr. old neutered male Labrador Retriever mix, looking for that special person or family to give him a lifelong loving home. Rocket is a very happy-go-lucky dog and his tail is always wagging. He is friendly with adults, kids and gets along with other dogs. Rocket is well behaved, walks nicely on a leash, knows commands such as “sit” and “down” and is ready to learn more. He is currently participating in the K-9 PALS Dog Behavior Training classes. Rocket will be a wonderful companion for that lucky person or family that adopts him.

If you are interested in adopting Rocket, call 805-681-4332, at Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Rd., Santa Barbara, CA, during business hours, Mon-Fri 9 – 4:45, Sat 10 – 4. Rocket can also be seen at community outreach and adoption events, (that is, until he gets adopted).

To view more photos and information on other dogs available for adoption, go to the K-9 PALS website: K9PALS. K-9 PALS provides free dog behavior training sessions for people who have adopted a dog from any local shelter, rescue organization or humane society.
