Life is a wonderful adventure with Baxter by your side!

This handsome 1-year-old husky hopes to find someone to explore the world with him. Baxter is a goofy and active boy who loves to spend time with his human friends in the great outdoors. He does well with other dogs and would be thrilled to find a home with a dog his size who would be willing to play with him. 

Santa Barbara Humane offers high-quality, affordable medical care, dog training, and adoption through its two campuses in Santa Maria and Santa Barbara. Cat and kitten walk-in adoption hours are Friday through Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. All other services are by appointment only from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Make an appointment at or call (805) 964-4777.

This young fellow got very lucky when he was found abandoned near a bike path with an injured ear. He was gathered up, brought to BUNS, and life got quickly better for him. His ear has healed and, although he was nervous and shy at first, Turnpike has become a friendly, happy and healthy bunny. He is neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and litter trained. This sweet boy is ready for his people to come take him home!

Could this be you?
