SINCE 1887

Champions for animals and the people who love them.

Founded in 1887, Santa Barbara Humane is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and one of the first animal welfare agencies in the country. With campuses in Santa Barbara and Santa Maria, Santa Barbara Humane provides low-cost veterinary care, vaccines, and spay/neuter; affordable and humane dog training classes; pet adoption; and animal rehoming services. As a local community organization not funded by any national agency, Santa Barbara Humane relies on the generous support of our community to ensure cats and dogs receive the care they need.

Let's Socialize!

BonBon is all about life in the slow lane. 
This gorgeous and sweet 11-year-old Poodle/Maltese mix is searching for a quiet, adult-only home where she can spend her golden years relaxing and taking it easy. Because BonBon doesn't care for sharing the spotlight, she would be happiest as the only dog in the home.
Does BonBon sound like your dream dog? Come meet her at our Santa Barbara campus! We are open for walk-in adoptions from 12 to 4:30 p.m. every day of the week except Wednesdays.

Let's go for a run! Or a hike! Or maybe a walk? 
Hi! I'm Orchid, and I want to get active with you! I am a two-year-old Husky, and I really love to play with my friends (both human and canine!) Everyone says that I'm a really sweet girl. I might be a little shy when you first meet me, but I warm up quickly! 
Do I sound like your dream dog? Come meet me at Santa Barbara Humane's Santa Barbara campus. They are open for walk-in adoptions from 12-4:30 PM every day of the week except Wednesdays.

Whether he is upside down or right side up, Stache sure is cute!
This handsome one-year-old boy is a little shy when you first meet him but incredibly sweet. Once he warms up, Stache is a loving kitty who enjoys being petted, playing with feather toys, and snuggling up in a cozy blanket. 
Want to make Stache part of your family? Come meet him at our Santa Barbara campus! We are open for walk-in adoptions from 12-4:30 PM every day of the week except Wednesdays.
