COUNTY ADOPTION PROCEDURES
Our list of dogs for adoption currently includes all dogs up for adoption with the Santa Barbara County Shelter in Goleta, and many dogs from other shelters and rescue groups in Santa Barbara, Ventura Counties, as well as a few dogs in rescues groups from as far north as Washington State and as far south as San Bernadino County CA. We are providing information about the dogs for adoption based on what the shelters make available to us. We are in the process of providing links to city and county stray animal shelters. We hope by doing this we will get your interest in making a visit to a shelter, because that is really the way to find your perfect match.
When you go to a shelter, take a tour of the kennels, ask staff or volunteers for assistance, and make note of the dog’s name and kennel number. The shelters do their best to have a posting of photos of dogs in foster and dogs temporarily away from the shelter.
For Santa Barbara County Shelters in Goleta, Lompoc, and Santa Maria, you will need to complete an application form
with no obligation and have it reviewed by the shelter staff.
Adoption costs vary depending on the shelter, humane society, or animal rescue group.
K-9 PALS offers 4 free dog behavior training sessions to adopters who live in our area, which includes Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. Our training classes are funded by donations to K-9 PALS for the promotion of life-long homes for dogs. You can donate specifically for our dog training programs by donating to the K-9 PALS Victor Fund.
