012821 Pet of the Week

Smudge is a 13-year-old female, white and tan, smooth-coated Chihuahua available for adoption or fostering at the Santa Maria Animal Center.

Smudge came to the shelter with a growth on her nose that the veterinary staff still is trying to diagnose.

When she first arrived at the shelter, she was not sure about being touched and could be a little snappy, which is understandable since she has difficulty breathing. Smudge would do best in a patient, quiet, adult-only home.

Smudge’s adoption fees include her spay, vaccinations, flea treatment, complimentary food sample and health/wellness exam. Her microchip is included compliments of Companion Animal Placement Assistance. 

The Santa Barbara County animal shelters are currently closed to walk-in traffic. Visit https://phshelter.com/ to see all of the animals available, and call to make an appointment to meet the animal of your choice.

The Santa Maria division of Santa Barbara County Animal Services is located at 548 W. Foster Road. For more information, call 805-934-6119.
