Look for these badges!

lonely hearts club Lonely Hearts Club
Adoption fees are waived on all Lonely Hearts Club animals. Some dogs and cats can be camera shy, others need more time to heal from a medical need, then there are those who need to meet you to get a chance to warm up. To help these special pups and kitties stand out, the Lonely Hearts Club was created! This Lonely Hearts badge means an animal has been at the shelter longer than most and may need special attention from pet owners like you. 

Sponsored Adoption Sponsored Adoption
Your adoption fee is pre-paid by generous community members. Some animals are wagging and purring with delight to already have their adoption fees covered by generous community members who want to help them on their journey to a new home. Look for this badge to see if an adoption fee has been paid. If you want to make a difference by sponsoring an adoption fee, call 805-222-0139.

super pet vip VIP Super Pets
VIP Super Pets are excluded from adoption promotions and discounts. VIP animals are those that are in high demand and quickly find a loving home. You will notice that VIP Super Pets have higher adoption prices — this is because they leave a financial legacy for the other animals in our care who may need extensive medical care or more time to find a loving home.
