Santa Barbara Humane Society Celebrates Adopt-a-Dog Month with “Name Your Price” Adoption Promotion


October is national Adopt-a-Dog Month, a public awareness campaign to bring attention to the millions of homeless dogs living at animal shelters throughout the country. In order to celebrate this special event, the Santa Barbara Humane Society is offering a unique adoption promotion. For the entire month of October when potential adopters pay for a membership to the Santa Barbara Humane Society, they can name their price for any dog adoption!

The typical adoption fee for dogs is $80, but if you become a member during October at the $25 annual membership level, you can name your price to adopt your new furry friend. The adoption fee that you declare includes: spay/neuter surgery, health exam, vaccinations, microchip with registration, temperament evaluation, de-worming (for puppies), background/personality profile, a starter packet of food and a dog care booklet.  You will also receive all of the perks of membership, which include low-cost dog and cat boarding, low-fee vaccinations, reduced enrollment fees for special classes, and much more.  This small fee allows the independent nonprofit to remain a valuable resource to the community.

The Humane Society has dogs in all shapes, sizes and ages, with personalities to match your lifestyle.  Adopters are welcome to come to the Halloween-decorated shelter to meet and greet our dogs. Twice a day the dogs socialize with each other in playgroups, which is a perfect time to come see them in action. They are also available to visit one-on-one from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

For more information about the promotion or to sign-up for membership online, please visit or call (805) 964-4777.
