On 100 acres in northern Santa Barbara County, Shadow's Fund has created the Sheltering Oak Sanctuary. Not just a sanctuary for rescued dogs, horses, pigs, chickens and other animals, but a project in balance with the land we're using. The native wildlife, and their habitat, is honored and will be left untouched. The trees and plants that grow on this land will remain and will be joined by more native plants. And, we are working towards a sustainable management plan for our energy and water needs - including wind, solar, and rainwater.
In addition to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming we currently do, we will offer educational clinics for animal behavior, training, and responsible stewardship as well as clinics in the healing arts such as reiki. Within the safe haven of this special place, animals and people will have the time, space and love to heal and to move forward with happy, healthy lives. Thanks so much to all of our supporters, corporate donors, and volunteers that have helped us realize this vision.
Who We Are
Shadow's Fund was created to provide rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing for seniors and other special needs dogs that often get passed over by the public in shelters. Our goal is to provide those without hope the chance to experience love and joy again.
Adopting a friend
We strive to place all of our rescued dogs in forever homes. Our adoption process includes a questionnaire to learn more about what you are looking for, a meet and greet with the dog and your pets, a home visit, and an adoption contract. Our adoption fee is $300 for adults and $350 for puppies. To encourage families to consider bringing in senior dogs to their home, we usually waive or greatly reduce the adoption fee.
