C.A.R.E.4Paws sees record-breaking year – Santa Barbara News-Press

2021 was a record-breaking year for CARE4Paws and its commitment to helping pets.

During the year, the Santa Barbara County nonprofit neutered and fertilized 2,025 dogs, cats and rabbits, and helped 17,000 pets receive veterinary care, according to an email sent to supporters and the media.

The nonprofit also hosted pet clinics that provide 15,000 vaccines, flea treatments, deworming medications, microchips and nail clippers.

In addition, CARE4Paws distributed two tons of pet food weekly, providing essential supplies and temporary care as well as pet grooming for community members experiencing homelessness. The nonprofit organization has also assisted domestic violence survivors through the Safe Haven Program, which provides assistance with handling pets so people can leave abusive situations.

The nonprofit also helped 10,000 dogs and cats with critical health services through its mobile clinic in 2021.

“We love to know that so many of our four-legged family members are receiving the care they need to stay healthy and at home!” CARE4Paws said in her email.

CARE 4Paws also fostered compassion for all living things while working with young people through Paws Up For Pets. “This includes talented young artists who paint great pieces for the Pet Portrait project,” the nonprofit said in its email.

“We could not have achieved all of this without you, our donors, donors, sponsors, business and nonprofit partners, volunteers, and employees,” CARE4Paws said.

The nonprofit has cited the success behind its events like donating a car on December 4 and its home for a festive adoption festival at Earl Warren Showgrounds and at Santa Maria Elks Lodge.

“The community came together in a beautiful way to raise food and money for families of pets in need,” CARE4Paws said.
