Animal Shelters Offer $75 Might Dog Deal

Mighty Dog May offers all Santa Barbara County dog owners the opportunity to get their small but mighty companions, under 30 pounds, spayed or neutered, vaccinated against rabies, and licensed, all for $75.

Spaying or neutering one's dog, significantly reduces licensing fees, improves his or her quality of life, and reduces the risk of mammary and testicular cancers.

Appointments are expected to fill up quickly, so dog owners are encouraged to call one of the following organizations to schedule an appointment:

• Santa Barbara County Animal Services, Project PetSafe, 934-6968
• Santa Maria Valley Humane Society, 349-3435
• Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society, 688-8224
• Santa Barbara Humane Society, 964-4777
• C.A.R.E. 4Paws, 968-2273

The Santa Barbara County Responsible Pet Ownership Alliance is a collaboration between Santa Barbara County Animal Services, Santa Maria Valley Humane Society, Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society, C.A.R.E. 4Paws, VIVA, and the Santa Barbara County Animal Care Foundation.

The partners work to help Santa Barbara County pet owners be responsible by ensuring affordable spay-neuter services are available countywide.

For more information, contact the Project PetSafe Team, 934-6968.

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!
