Community members can support local businesses and help animals in need by ordering a favorite ale or grabbing a slice of pizza. Klondike Pizza in Santa Maria and Draughtsmen Aleworks in Santa Barbara and Goleta are giving back during March.

Klondike Pizza, 2059 S. Broadway, will donate a portion of its proceeds, plus other opportunities in store, to Santa Barbara Humane. Klondike’s annual fundraiser has raised thousands to support shelter programs like affordable veterinary care and adoption.

“Klondike has been an amazing champion of animals even outside of their annual fundraiser, “ said Sofia Rodriguez, chief philanthropy officer. “All year, they invite us to post profiles of our long-term residents who need extra exposure and to bring animals anytime. They truly care about the mission.”

At Draughtsmen Aleworks, customers can visit the taproom at 53 Santa Felicia Drive, Goleta; or the Mosaic Locale location, 1131 State St., Santa Barbara.

Proceeds from the “karma tap” in March will support Santa Barbara Humane. Customers are also invited to donate to cast a vote for their favorite pet, either cats or dogs.

In addition, the winner of the dog vs. cat fundraiser will find that species’ image on a limited release beer coming out in May. Its sales will also benefit Santa Barbara Humane’s shelter programs supporting thousands of dogs and cats in need.

“Draughtsmen is one of those partners that was all in,” said Rodriguez. “They wanted to maximize the opportunities to raise funds to help dogs and cats and increase awareness. We are very grateful for this partnership.”
