Welcome! Join our volunteer team to help animals in need!


Volunteers- img2

Volunteers are a crucial part of Santa Barbara County Animal Services and we hope you'll choose to join our team!  With many ways to contribute to our life-saving work, we look forward to speaking with you about how you'd like to be involved.  With roles including the daily care and feeding of our shelter animals, as well as everything from being a driver on our transport team to an assisting in our veterinary clinic, from playing and cuddling with the adoptable animals to assisting with behind-the-scenes admin work, we hope to find a role that's as rewarding for you as it is immensely helpful for the animals in our shelters.  Interested in fostering so that an animal can wait in your cozy home instead of our kennels? Skilled at photography? Marketing? Videography?  The ways you can give back are endless and we can't wait to get you on board!
