Zombies Will Break Out in Run to Help Shelter Animals

The Santa Barbara County Animal Care Foundation (SBCACF) Board of Directors and shelter volunteers are preparing for the upcoming 3rd Annual Zombie Glow Run, which benefits animals at all three local county animal shelters.

The zombies will be coming alive as volunteers participate in the zombie-building party 6-9 p.m. (or longer) on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at the education center at the Santa Maria Animal Shelter, 548 West Foster Road.

This year we will be making even more zombies as we have added a 3K trail to extend the run to a 5K for those who've requested this option. The extra 3K means participants will receive even more glow items and also means more zombies.

Those who'd like to join the zombie-making party in preparation for the Zombie Glow Run and learn more about this event can contact Libby Walling at 298-2968.

SBCACF is making a difference in the lives of the homeless animals in Santa Barbara County shelters. Since its first pet walk in 2002, funding has gone toward saving the lives of hundreds of dogs, cats, bunnies and horses through the Santa Barbara County Animal Care Foundation Sebastian Medical Treatment Fund.

SBCACF also funds special projects and programs to improve the quality of life for shelter animals, offer affordable spay-and-neuter options for local residents, educate local youth, partner to support local veterans at the annual Stand Down event, and assist other animal organizations as a member of the RPO Alliance.

The vision of SBCACF is to prevent homeless, but adoptable, animals within our county shelters from being euthanized simply because there is no one else to pay the medical bills.

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!
