Did you know today is National Nonprofit day? And did you know Santa Barbara Humane is a 501(c)(3) local nonprofit?

It's true! Founded 135 years ago, Santa Barbara Humane was one of the first animal welfare organizations in the country. Because we are a local nonprofit that is not affiliated with or funded by the Humane Society of the United States or ASPCA, Santa Barbara Humane relies on local donor support to ensure every dog and cat gets the care they need.

Your donations help animals right here in Santa Barbara County who are counting on you! Today and any day, you can visit sbhumane.org/givenow to make your impact on animals in your community.

There may be times when you feel a fright,
as if the world around you may crumble.
But it will all be alright
if you have a kitten named Grumble!

Grumble is a young lad
at only two-months-old.
He'll be there whenever you are sad,
and he may even settle on your lap if he's feeling bold!

Grumble doesn't need gourmet treats or fancy toys;
All he truly wants is a loving home.
Now's your chance to adopt this sweet boy.
With Grumble, you'll never be alone.

Want to make Grumble a part of your family? Come into our cat and kitten adoption walk-in hours Friday-Sunday from 12-4 PM. Can't make it during those hours? Email [email protected] to make an adoption appointment today

Challa wants to be your one and only.

All this darling one-year-old Australian Shepherd/Belgian Malinois mix wants is someone special who understands him. Challa enjoys long walks on the beach, snuggling on the couch, and playing in the yard.

Challa isn't a fan of sharing the spotlight, so he would be happiest in a home with no other animals or young children.

Step aside, Harry. There is a new Duke in town!

Meet Duke. Much like the Duke of Sussex, this one-year-old American Shorthair enjoys polo, philanthropy, and Santa Barbara County sunshine.

Ok... that's not entirely true. This Duke doesn't know what polo is, and as a cat, his philanthropic interests are fairly limited. But Duke definitely enjoys sunbathing. Duke is also fond of spending time with his human pals and snuggling with other cats. He might be a little shy when you first meet him, but with a little time and some gentle pats, he quickly warms up.

If Duke sounds like your kind of cat, come into our cat and kitten adoption walk-in hours Friday-Sunday from 12-4 PM. Can't make it during those hours? Email [email protected] to make an adoption appointment today!

Icarus is the biggest, sweetest, goofiest boy.

All this adorable six-year-old Pit Bull mix wants is to be loved. Icarus loves spending time with people and he will gladly give you a million kisses if you let him. He is the kind of dog who would prefer a lazy day cuddling on the couch instead of going for a hike.
