Shark Week-Themed Sale Takes Bite Out of Pet-Adoption Fees

In honor of Shark Week, the Santa Barbara Humane Society is celebrating Bark Week by letting chance decide adoption prices July 24-29. The spinning wheel will tell pet adopters the price of their new first mates.

As a resource for the community, the Santa Barbara Humane Society welcomes the chance to make adoptions more affordable. Its dogs and cats are ready to chart a course outside the shelter's gates.

During Bark Week, adoption prices range from $10 off to free. The adoption fee for dogs is usually $80 and for cats it is usually $60.

These prices include spay/neuter surgery, a health examination, vaccinations, microchip with registration, temperament evaluation, de-wormer, background/personality profile, starter packet of food, and pet-care booklet.

The Santa Barbara Humane Society also appreciates donations. For more information, visit sbhumanesociety.org or call 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!
