We think you will simply adore this sweet little puppy named Adore!
Adore is a four-month-old Chihuahua/Poodle mix who arrived at Santa Barbara Humane with a sprained leg. But this darling girl hasn't let her injured leg slow her down! Adore is a very sweet dog who is looking for a loving family who will help guide her to being the very best girl she can be.
Are you interested in making Adore part of your family? Come visit her at our Santa Maria campus! We are open for walk-in adoptions from 12 to 4:30 PM every day of the week except Wednesdays.

Chumba is so fetch. No, wait, that isn't right. Chumba is so into playing fetch. 
Sorry, Regina George. Fetch is definitely going to happen if this handsome one-year-old Schnauzer/Terrier mix has any say. You see, Chumba really, really, really loves to play fetch and pretty much any other game you can think of. He is a fun and engaging dog who is eager to learn and refine his skills in training sessions.
Does Chumba sound like your kind of dog? Come visit him at our Santa Maria campus! We are open for walk-in adoptions from 12 to 4:30 PM every day of the week except Wednesdays.

Picture this: you're sitting in a Zoom meeting, listening to some total nonsense. And you think you are doing a great job controlling your face. But then you catch a glimpse of yourself on the screen, and your face looks exactly like Kimmy's does in this photo. 
Now you may be thinking, c'mon Kimmy..you're a career-oriented cat; be a professional and save your RCF (resting cat face) for when you're off camera. But here's the thing...this is what this darling 13-year-old cat looks like when she's happy. And when she's sleepy. And pretty much every other time. Except when she is being brushed. That's when this sweet but shy kitty really comes out of her shell and has the closest thing to a smile on her precious little face. 
So if you'd like to brush Kimmy and turn her resting cat face into an almost smile, please come on into our Santa Barbara campus! We are open for walk-in adoptions from 12 to 4:30 PM every day of the week except Wednesdays.
