Santa Barbara Humane Society Sets Up Holiday Pet Boutique

What could be more rewarding than that great Black Friday deal, spending Small Business Saturday in the local shops, or all those gifts you found on Cyber Monday on company time? We think “Local Nonprofit Saturday” at the Santa Barbara Humane Society could be your most meaningful shopping experience this holiday season.

Most people are aware that tough economic times are as hard on pets as they are on their owners. All animal shelters have been struggling for several years to care for and place in homes large numbers of homeless animals, many of them in need of expensive medical treatments.

You can be part of the solution, help animals who are homeless through no fault of their own, and get some great deals on holiday gifts for your pets and pet-loving friends.

Come to one of our Holiday Pet Boutique sales to be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, Dec. 1, and again on Saturday, Dec. 15. We will be offering for sale, at a discount, hundreds of high-quality pet accessories, including toys, clothing, collars, leashes and more.

OffLeash, formerly on State Street, and Montecito Pet Shop donated most of the sale items. They are all very well made and adorable. Some are quite unique.

The Humane Society is located at 5399 Overpass Road, which is off Patterson Avenue. The sales will be held in its Education Center. Your own pets are always welcome to visit the Humane Society, so feel free to bring your dog (or cat) on a leash if he or she would like to try on a warm sweater for size, or perhaps a Santa Barbara T-shirt.

We hope you will come shop at one our Local Nonprofit Saturday sales. For more information, call 805.964.4777.

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!
