About us

Santa Barbara Animal Rescue helps homeless, abused and neglected dogs and cats in Santa Barbara County through rescue, a no-kill shelter, spay/neuter, foster care, feral cat colony care and community education.

Since 2003, Santa Barbara Animal Rescue has helped over 250 dogs and 700 cats, many of whom still live in the Rescue's cattery and dog sanctuary or in foster care.

The Rescue is run solely by volunteers and funded by individual donations and community support. Santa Barbara Animal Rescue is a registered 501c3 charity.
