Together we can save and enrich the lives of the homeless animals of our community.
Pet food insecurity for families has increased significantly during COVID-19 in Northern Santa Barbara County and with shutdowns approaching it is likely to become worse.
Helping families feed their cherished pets helps to keep pets with their families and prevents surrender to a shelter.
In collaboration with PETSMART-Santa Maria, C.A.R.E.4Paws, CAPA and SBCAS in December the SBC Animal Care Foundation is hosting a Pet Food Drive to help support families with pet food insecurity needs.
Since COVID started CARE4Paws has been distributing approximately 4 TONS of pet food weekly thru their pet food distribution events, prior to that they distributed about 2 TONS per year.
Tax-deductible donations of unopened bags of dry or canned cat or dog food are needed to fill our County shelters pet food pantry's in Lompoc and Santa Maria and for CARE4Paws food distribution events to help families in need.
Donations of pet food can be made by leaving your precious gift in the FOOD DRIVE bin at PETSMART- Santa Maria, Santa Maria Animal Center at 548 W. Foster Road or by appointment at the Lompoc Community Pantry at 805-737-7757.
Tax deductible donations to help purchase food at substantial discount is appreciated and needed. Specify FOOD DRIVE and 100% of your donation will be used to purchase pet food. Donate at: www.sbcanimalcare.org

We're asking for help from the community for an amazing girl we just met!
Guadalupe PD responded to a call from a concerned citizen recently, and upon arrival discovered this sweet little gem of a dog caught up in horrible conditions. Officers brought her to the shelter where the medical staff quickly began responding to her litany of issues---eyes, ears, skin—you name it! She’s now on a diet to slowly add nutrients back into her system, with the support of medications and a dedicated medical staff, we’re confident she’s on the mend.
Here’s how you can help...
Lots of animals come into the shelter with an unknown background, but shelter staff could tell she's been fending for herself for a while now. Despite this, she was very patient and tolerant with vet staff while they thoroughly examined her to determine the best course of action to lead to her recuperation. This means lab work and diagnostics, above and beyond the normal course of action, and we’re hoping you can help. First, she will need a name! Secondly, your donation will help medical staff provide the best care recommended to help get her back on her feet and ready for her new home. We can't imagine all that she's been through but despite everything, she's still a very loving girl who loves being with people, who comes right up to you and melts at your feet. We're asking the community to donate anything they can to help cover lab, diagnostic and medication costs to get this sweet girl as good as new and eventually into the loving home she deserves.
And……how about that name?!😊
It is our mission to promote animal welfare and to better the quality of life for animals in Santa Barbara County through education, outreach, collaboration and promotion of the humane ethic and responsible treatment of all animals.
The SBC Animal Care Foundation, Inc. was established in the Spring of 2002. We are an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c)3 organization. Funds that are donated to our foundation are not donations to the County, we are a separate Foundation that was established. Our efforts and focus are supporting & maintaining Santa Barbara County Animal Services No Kill Achievement.
We often receive requests from pet guardians/owners who are struggling to find the funding to pay for a needed surgery or treatment. Although we appreciate the dedication of each pet guardian/owner, the Santa Barbara County Animal Care Foundation, Inc. does not have the funding to assist with the medical funding of animals who have guardians/owners. It make our hearts heavy to have to refuse, but
Pet overpopulation is a problem in our community
