The mission of the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society is made possible by the day-to-day efforts of our dedicated hard-working staff. Their diligence to quality care, and their devotion to the animals that come through our doors ensures a bright and healthy future for four-legged and two-legged companions alike.
