Santa Barbara, Calif., June 16, 2016 – With a local play on Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, the Santa Barbara Humane Society is taking a bite out of their adoption prices! “Bark Week” is June 26th-July 2nd and if you dare to swim to the shelter, you can receive a unique discount on your adoption fee.  Spin the wheel and find out how big of a bite will be taken out of your adoption fee – anywhere from $10 off to a completely free adoption!  


“Shark Week has become a fun opportunity for us to explore the diverse abilities and personalities of the shark species,” said Peggy Langle, Santa Barbara Humane Society Executive Director. “At the Santa Barbara Humane Society, we recognize the different abilities and personalities of our animals in order to make the perfect adoption match.”

Instead of the traditional Shark Cam, the Santa Barbara Humane Society even has its own Bark Cam video. Experience a dog’s eye view during a recent session of the organization’s innovative daily playgroups for dogs. View the latest video at https://youtu.be/7adRPGilyIA.


The special adoption fee, normally $60 for cats and $80 for dogs, includes spay/neuter surgery, health exam, vaccination, microchip with registration, temperament evaluation, de-worming, background/personality profile, starter packet of food, and a pet care booklet.
