Project PetSafe Clinic Planned for Sunday in Goleta

Services will be available during the Wags 'n' Whiskers Festival in Goleta

Dog owners and their dogs are encouraged to come to Santa Barbara County Animal Services’ special Project PetSafe Outreach Clinic from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 29 during the Wags ‘n’ Whiskers Festival at Girsh Park in Goleta.

The following will be available at the Project PetSafe Clinic:

» Free six-month dog licenses for dogs that have never been licensed

» Dog license renewals; all late fees will be waived

» Affordable vaccinations including rabies, DHPP and bordatella

» Microchipping $20

» Information about affordable spay and neuter services

All dogs must be on leash. No appointments needed. Cash (no bills over $50) and checks accepted.

A current rabies certificate and written proof that the dog is spayed or neutered (if applicable) are required to obtain a dog license.

Many dog owners do not realize that state and local laws require all dogs older than 4 months to be licensed and wearing the tag.

“A license is your pet’s ticket home. When our Animal Services officers rescue a pet wearing a license, we are able to take it directly home to its family,” Animal Services Director Jan Glick said. “Wearing a license tells everyone that your pet has an owner who wants to keep their pet safe.”

After the clinic, join fellow animal lovers at the Wags ‘n’ Whiskers Festival sponsored by C.A.R.E.4Paws starting at 11 a.m. Dogs, cats and bunnies available for adoption from 17 shelter and rescue groups, including the county’s three animal shelters, will be at the festival.

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!
