Pet Adoption and Owner Claim Fees Waived for the Month of October

The Santa Barbara County Animal Services Shelter in Santa Maria needs your help to reduce the number of pets in the shelter.

Much needed repairs to the site are underway and will create significant animal care challenges. These improvements should last until mid-November.

Adoption and owner claim fees will be waived for all pets through the end of October at Santa Maria Animal Shelter and Santa Barbara Animal Shelter.

“We want to inspire people to come and get their lost pets back,” Sarah Aguilar, director of the Santa Barbara County Animals Services Shelter, told KSBY. “Or also just to temporarily house a pet in their home so they have a little break from the shelter.”

Shelter officials say they need to reduce the number of pets in the shelter by at least 50%.

Additionally, the shelter is asking friends and neighbors to open their homes to welcome a pet during construction. The shelter provides food, supplies and support to all foster families caring for pets.

Community members are encouraged to view animals available for fostering or adoption on the shelter’s website.

The Santa Maria and Santa Barbara shelters are open for adoptions from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
