The pet loving community turned out on a sunny fall day in Santa Barbara to celebrate their four-legged companions and get those in need of adoption to a loving home. The Wags n' Whiskers event is the largest adoption festival on the central coast and is put on by the amazing non-profit C.A.R.E. 4Paws whose mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and keep animals out of shelters. The event featured vendors with the latest pet products and wellness tips, low cost vaccines with Project PetSafe and animals up for adoption from several shelters — over 31 dogs and cats found their forever homes! Military dogs from Vandenberg Air Force Base were highlights of the day plus the boatload of ADORABLE animals were a sight to see. Many of them were dressed to impress in their cutest costumes for the Strut your Mutt fashion show. Yours truly got to capture a few of these pups and their people as I manned the event's photo booth! Check it out!
