Welcome to Santa Barbara County’s Animal Services website. We are proud to operate three community animal shelters in our County, offering a safe place for stray, abandoned or unwanted animals. Our county is fortunate to have a small and dedicated Animal Services team of staff augmented by wonderful resources provided through a very active and effective volunteer program.
In 2010, the County launched Project PetSafe, a program dedicated to increasing pet owner responsibility and promoting the message to:
- Spay and Neuter, and
- Micro-chip pets
A pet’s license is their ticket home and we look forward to being able to re-unite more lost pets through this exciting new program.
Our goal is to promote the quality of life for the animals and people in Santa Barbara County. Thank you for visiting our new website.
