    SB County Animal Services Continues to See Record Number of Intakes

    SBCAS Encouraging Paw-liday Fosters

    By Santa Barbara County Animal Services

    At the beginning of December, pets were coming into the county animal shelters at a rate of about 14 a day. That trend has not stopped, and the county is encouraging adoptions and fostering with the Paw-liday promotion.

    Through the end of the year, SBCAS is holding a ‘Name Your Price’ adoption promotion and encouraging fostering during your winter break.

    Director Sarah Aguilar states, “We believe that everyone would pay a million dollars for their family pet if they could, but it’s just not possible. We never want an adoption fee to be a barrier to experiencing the love of a furry friend.”

    About 150 pets are currently housed in foster homes on their way to adoption. “Fostering is the bridge between a pet’s past and future. Foster families provide a safe and loving temporary home, in stark contrast to the isolation of a shelter kennel.”

    As an added incentive, anyone who takes a pet home during December, whether as an adopter or foster, is entered into a drawing for some amazing donated raffle items. To learn more about adoption or fostering, or to become a volunteer, visit https://linktr.ee/sbcanimalservices

    Santa Barbara County Animal Services takes in about 5,000 pets annually across two shelter locations.
