The last three dogs from a closing animal shelter in Coalinga, CA will have a second chance to find their forever homes at the Santa Barbara Humane Society.
The shelter in Coalinga, CA is closing for important renovations this week, and as the operation of the shelter passes from Coalinga’s Animal Control to a nonprofit organization. The dogs, who are all 2 years old, were flown into Santa Barbara Municipal Airport by a volunteer from Pilots N Paws on Friday, June 14, 2019.
This is not the first time that Santa Barbara Humane Society has stepped in to help other shelters in need. Last year, SBHS took fifteen dogs from shelters in the path of Hurricane Michael. Additionally, during the Woolsey Fire, Santa Barbara Humane Society took in thirteen dogs from Ventura County Animal Services.
Kerri Burns, the Executive Director of Santa Barbara Humane Society, says that SBHS is always happy to help other shelters, “We are all in this for the same reason—to help animals, and so we are always happy to help a partner when they are in need.”
