Santa Maria Valley Humane Society

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1982, operating out of Santa Maria, and providing our services to the local community.  Originally an all volunteer-run organization without an operating shelter, the Santa Maria Humane Society has grown into a permanent facility, and added paid staff in order to address the growing need to care for the adoptable animals and tackle northern Santa Barbara County's rising animal overpopulation crisis. Responding to the tremendous need to supply the public with affordable spay & neuter services, we operned our low-cost clinic in 1998, and it remains as the only permanent low-cost spay & neuter clinic available to the public between Monterey to Buellton.
