It's Name your Price all October! (Must have at least a $25 membership). Sylvester and his best buddy Rhonda are the final two dogs for adoption that were rescued from a hoarding situation last fall. These two share such a special bond that we would love to see them find a home together and their adoption fee is therefore two for one. Their favorite part of the day is our doggie playgroups where they get to romp around with the others, but it's clear that they are each others' favorite play buddies. After a good run around the yard we usually find them passed out contentedly sleeping with their heads rested on top of one another in the sun. Rhonda is the more confident of the two, but you'll see in the attached video that Sylvester (or Silly, as we like to call him) loves to give kisses to his favorite people! Follow their story on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/santabarbarahumanesociety We would love to show this special pair to you. If you are interested, the best thing to do is visit Rhonda and Sylvester between 10am and 4:30pm Monday through Saturday!

Domino is a very special cat. He had an infection when he first came in so he really got to know our vet staff and then he recovered and gained some weight by living the good life in our Public Relations Coordinator's office. Everyone who meets Domino falls in love. He has a quirky little meow and loves to be pet on every inch of his body. He likes to sit with both of his legs to one side. He met a couple dogs in his time in the office and was not phased. He was very good about his litter box and managed not to step on the keyboard too much when he strolled around the desk. His favorite place to sit was right behind our staff member on her office chair. This guy is a keeper! Interested in learning more?
