Thank you for visiting Spark Rescue.


Spark Rescue is a non-profit 501c (3) charity rescue organization whose focus is finding permanent homes for at-risk animals in high-kill shelters in California.


We are located in Santa Barbara, CA


Spark Rescue has dogs in all shapes and sizes for adoption: mixes and purebreds, puppies, adult dogs, and senior, dogs. And we also have cats! All our adoptable animals have been spayed/ neutered, microchipped, and are up to date on their vaccinations. Before you can adopt, we ask that you submit an application and, upon approval, an adoption contract. Our fees cover the expense of medical, transport and fostering is required.


We are a non-profit, foster-only organization, and your tax deductible donations go directly towards making better lives for all our animals. Thank you for supporting Spark Rescue and for choosing to adopt.

Not sure about adopting a rescue animal?
Consider becoming a foster!

We are a foster-based rescue, and every person who opens up their home to a dog or cat is a life saver. Pets are a lifetime commitment, and you may want to spend some time with a dog or cat before adopting. Fostering is easier than you think, and more important than you can imagine. By sharing your home and love for a few weeks with a rescue animal, you can help transition from the stressful, scary shelter environment to a future loving forever home. Being part of that transition is one of the most rewarding experiences an animal lover can have.
