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.
