The Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society hosts a number of events throughout the year. Here you'll find our fundraising events, which help keep the shelter operational; as well as community outreach events and news. Our tight knit and generous SYV community allows us to continually provide the services that we do, and through this page we strive to tighten the weave of our community by keeping everyone informed and engaged. Please check back often for events and information.

Attention: Due to the emergence and unpredictability of COVID-19, we have made the decision to close our veterinary clinic for the time being. We are open for adoptions and fostering by appointment only.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
FYI: According to the World Health Organization, there is no evidence that companion animals have been infected or could spread Covid-19. 🙏
Your pet's dental hygiene is important to a healthy and happy life. Maintaining their dental hygiene with regular check ups and cleanings is one easy way to keep your pet in tip top shape. Just like you go to the dentist once or twice a year. Call today to schedule a dental consult at (805) 688-8224 to see if we can scale and polish your dog’s teeth.
Our clinic is open Mon, Tues & Thurs by appointment only, and dental days are Tuesday's only. Please call to make an appointment ahead of time.
Come adopt a loving pet of your own. Our adoption center is open whenever we are!
Our normal hours are Mon-Sat, 10am-4pm.
