As with most charities, the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society cannot continue to operate on operational income alone and relies on financial support from fundraising events and donations from the community to keep our doors open. We are not operated by nor do we receive funding from any national humane organization or any governmental agency.


We encourage individuals and businesses that share our concern for animals to consider becoming members of the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society. Your annual membership donation helps offset the operating costs of running our animal shelter. Additionally, as a member of the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society you will receive:

  • Eligibility to utilize our pet boarding service

  • Subscription to our "Pet Tails" newsletter containing both informative and educational materials

  • Tax deduction of your membership donation to the extent allowed by law

...and perhaps more importantly:

  • The opportunity to personally contribute towards the efforts of our humane society to provide the help and care of our homeless pets.

Support us by joining iGive. The Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society can earn money whenever you shop online. iGive is a free service where shopping at any of 1476 stores like Amazon, Macy's, Overstock, PETCO, and many more, means a donation to your favorite cause. To help the animals in our care, please go to: iGive


A bequest to the Humane Society can be part of your estate plan, creating a legacy of care for the animals and people of our community. Check with your legal counsel to determine how best to support us through a bequest.


We welcome donations in the form of stocks bonds or other securities.
