We provide low-cost veterinary care to the Santa Barbara & Santa Maria Valley communities.

When your pet needs quality veterinary care, Santa Barbara Humane can help. Affordable services are a critical part of our continued commitment to the animals and people who love them on the Central Coast. Funding from community members in support of affordable and sometimes free care is vital to serving those who need it most. 

When you contribute, you are part of the mission too.

Any money the organization collects as part of your pet’s care provides an opportunity to help more. When you choose either of Santa Barbara Humane’s campuses in Santa Maria or Santa Barbara to spay or neuter your pet, to provide his/her vaccinations, or another service, you are supporting the transport program to bring in animals for adoption from overcrowded shelters. You are supporting the medical care homeless animals may need upon arrival and you are helping fellow community members who may need financial support to have the same service for their pets.

Limited preventative medications are also offered for sale in the clinics. These include flea and heartworm medications. To inquire about contactless pickup, please call the campus office.

Due to the generosity of community funders, Santa Barbara Humane offers a medical assistance program in Santa Maria to provide support to those who cannot afford care. Low-income-qualified families currently utilizing a need-based assistance program such as MediCal, MediCaid, WIC, CalWORKS, BIA general assistance, CalFresh, SSI, SSD, Section 8 housing, or major VA disability can receive assistance. If you would like to see if your circumstances qualify, view the requirements here: 

  • Client must provide proof of public assistance. Limited exceptions can be made at the discretion of the VP of Veterinary Medicine or Veterinary Practice Manager.
  • Assistance is intended for one visit per pet.
  • Additional assistance/visits must be approved on a case-by-case basis by the VP of Veterinary Medicine or Veterinary Practice Manager.
  • Because the organization is donor-funded, pet owners are encouraged to pay whatever portion of services they can afford.
  • Unfortunately, we cannot support any medical conditions that require hospitalization through this fund at this time.
  • If Santa Barbara Humane is unable to provide care due to limitations or restricted conditions, staff will offer recommendations for veterinary care/services. If suffering is present and humane euthanasia is recommended, we can provide assistance.
