Find Your Match at ‘Share the Love’ Animal Adoption Event

Receive a $14 discount this weekend when giving a pet a permanent home

Valentine’s Day is a great time to add some love to your home by adopting one of the many homeless animals in Santa Barbara County.

Santa Barbara County Animal Services, the Santa Barbara County Animal Care Foundation, Companion Animal Placement Assistance (C.A.P.A.), the Animal Shelter Assistance Program (A.S.A.P.), the K9 Placement Assistance League (K9 PALS) and Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter (B.U.N.S.) are joining forces to find homes for the hundreds of homeless pets housed in the county’s three community shelters.

The “Share the Love” adoption event will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at all three Santa Barbara County animal shelters.

The public is invited to help county Animal Services work toward the goal of becoming a no-kill county by providing a forever home to a homeless animal.

“Share the Love” will include a $14 discount on all of the animals searching for the perfect match.

“Our staff and volunteers work very hard to find loving homes for our animals. We are asking the public to ‘Share the Love’ with a shelter animal and hope that more people will consider opening their hearts to adopting a pet,” said Jan Glick, director of Animal Services.

Bring the whole family to one of the three shelters: the Lompoc Shelter at 1501 W. Central, the Santa Barbara Shelter at 5473 Overpass Road or the Santa Maria Animal Center at 548 W. Foster Road.

Your true love is waiting.

— Michele Mickiewicz is a public information officer for Santa Barbara County Animal Services.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
