ORCUTT, Calif. — The nonprofit Santa Barbara Humane is offering free pet vaccines, microchips, and topical flea control for dogs this Sunday in Waller Park.
Community members enjoyed food trucks, live music and a dog agility show during this year’s Santa Maria celebration in the park.
“We just came to the park to say, have a great day with, you know, a family day together. But then I saw the Humane Society booth and so we’re going to microchip Paco and Chloe today” , said Angela Flores of Saint Mary.
The Santa Barbara Humane had booths for dog owners to sign up for training and classes.
“We have a great behavior training and coaching team who can give you the advice you need. And sometimes the tools just might be the right harness to make sure you can really take your pet wherever you go with your family,” said Keri Burns, CEO of Santa Barbara Humane.
Funding for free pet services was sponsored by Central Coast Truck Center, Petco Love, Community Bank of Santa Maria and others.
“It’s a wonderful event to give people the opportunity to have free access to this information, and to have the opportunity to socialize their animals in a public place,” said director, Paige Van Tuyl.
The association asked that the dogs have at least six weeks for the vaccines and be kept on a leash.
