Donation Drives

Pet Food Donation Drives

Since the start of the pandemic, C.A.R.E.4Paws has distributed 900,000 pounds of pet food throughout Santa Barbara County, compared to 4,000 pounds total in 2019! Want to help keep animals healthy and in their homes? Make a pawsitive difference by supporting our frequent donation drives,  dropping off pet food at one of our partner locations, donating monetary gifts and organizing your own donation drive!

Donation Drive-Thrus

Our Howliday Donation Drive-Thru on Saturday, December 3 was a huge success! We raised more than ONE TON of pet food and $25,000 in monetary gifts, including $20,000 toward the purchase of a brand-new mobile clinic from our longtime supporter Lyn Proctor. We have also received many very generous online and mailed-in contributions to support our programs. WOW! We are so grateful to our incredible donors and volunteers. Thank you! Photos coming soon.
