FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March is the time to Adopt a Dog and to Celebrate!
You don’t need a four-leaf clover to get the “luck” of the Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, and to celebrate K-9 PALS’ 12th Anniversary of serving Santa Barbara County Shelter dogs. You can get “lucky” when you adopt a dog from the Santa Barbara County Shelter. Lots of adoptable “lucky charm” dogs are waiting to fill your life with love and laughter. And as part of the celebrations this month, K-9 PALS will be sponsoring the following Santa Barbara County Shelter dog adoption promotion.
Whether a rainbow appears or not, a lucky “pot of gold” will be waiting at Santa Barbara County Shelter for adopters who want to test their luck, courtesy of K-9 PALS. Everyone who adopts a dog from the Santa Barbara County Shelter between Saturday, March 17th and Friday, March 23rd, will get to reach into the “pot of gold” for a K-9 PALS lucky coin and receive a discount ($10, $15, or $20) off the regular adoption fee.
Your adopted “lucky charm” dog will be spayed or neutered with age-appropriate vaccinations, and dogs over 4 months old include a rabies vaccination certificate. In addition, 4 free group training sessions are offered by K-9 PALS to help the adopters of shelter dogs. The Santa Barbara County Animal Services Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road, is open weekdays from 9:00 am to 4:45 pm and Saturday 10:00 am to 3:45 pm.
Whether you are ready to adopt a dog right now or not, you can join in the celebrations by giving a monetary gift in honor of the 12th Anniversary of K-9 PALS helping the dogs of the Santa Barbara County Shelter.
