Our April Pet Food Donation Drive-Thru

We hosted our first Pet Food Donation Drive-Thru on April 24 and 25 at multiple locations across Santa Barbara County. Thanks to so many generous community members, we raised tons of pet food and critical funds to help support pet owners struggling during the pandemic.  We are beyond grateful to all of our contributors, volunteers and location hosts for making this event such a huge success.
