About Our Auction
The Santa Barbara County Animal Care Foundation is hosting an online auction just in time for the gift giving season. The Wags & Purrs Online Holiday Auction features items for pets and for people, so get ready to let your fingers do the shopping!
Proceeds benefit the homeless, injured or sick animals in our 3 County shelters. Our primary focus is funding critical or emergency medical care of injured or sick stray animals that arrive at the shelters in need of emergency or critical Veterinary care who might otherwise be euthanized due to lack of funds. Some examples of animals in need of this type of care are animals that have been hit by a car, suffered abuse or neglect. We also fund low to no cost spay/neuter, behavior training for animals not considered adoptable due to behavior issues and shelter enrichment.
