Journey is an eight year old German Shepherd who has been passed up for some time now at our Santa Barbara shelter. We’d sure love to find her a foster or forever home for the holidays!  She’s a loving girl who will do best as the only pet in the home.

Jim is a confident young guinea pig who enjoys time with people he knows. Loud noises and barking do not work for him. If you help him feel comfy and safe he will melt and be a love-bug. Sharing fresh greens while on your lap is his favorite activity.


Whittaker is a sweet snowball of a bunny to keep you warm in cold weather. Children are his favorite visitors and he seeks their attention. He is easy to handle and enjoys being held. HIs litter habits are good – he does not think outside the box. Whittaker is the bunny who comes for the holidays and stays for a lifetime. Neutered, vaccinated for RHDV2 and microchipped, Whittaker is ready for the world.

BUNS is excited about Home for the Holidays! Families can share their Holiday with a bunny or guinea pig between now and January 4. We’ll provide the housing and supplies; you provide the love.
