Since 1887, we have provided service to the people and animal populations of Santa Barbara County. Our original purpose of prevention, protection and education remains a priority of the Humane Society to this day. A leader in humane education, we adapt our programs to reflect progressive changes to animal welfare policies and to respond to the changing needs of the community.
