C.A.R.E.4Paws works to reduce pet overpopulation and keep pets happy, healthy and with their families for life. We offer a range of free and low-cost services for pet owners in need, including vaccine clinics, spays and neuters, help with veterinary care and delivery of pet food. Our Paws Up For Pets youth program inspires compassion for animals and in our community as a whole.
Together, we make a pawsitive difference!
Mobile Pet Wellness
Our Mobile Community Medicine & Spay/Neuter Outreach program offers free spays/neuters and affordable veterinary care to qualifying low-income, senior, disabled and homeless pet owners in Santa Barbara County. We also host weekly, walk-in Pet Wellness Clinics with low-cost vaccines, microchips, flea treatment, and other important services.
The Latest Scoop
We have exciting program updates and new programs launching. Not only are we helping more animals and pet owners in need than ever before with spays/neuters, vet care and vaccine clinics, but we're introducing a community outreach consulting project outside of our county and programs to assist first responders and victims of domestic violence.
C.A.R.E.4Paws turns turns 10 this year, celebrating a decade of reducing pet overpopulation and assisting animals and pet owners in Santa Barbara County. We launched our organization in 2009 with our first Wags n' Whiskers Festival and on October 12, we hosted a hugely successful 11th annual festival, with a record-number of pet adoptions, event visitors and vendors!
