SB County Parks Mutt Mitt sponsorship
Montecito Pet Hospital (David P. Dawson, DVM) has generously agreed to help underwrite the cost of BioBags at Butterfly Beach County Park. Even at wholesale prices, biodegradable bags can be costly, so Montecito Pet Hospital's contribution is a big help in maintaining this canine amenity during tough economic times.
Veterinarian David Dawson shakes hands with County Parks Ranger Brian Switzer after placing BioBags in a dispenser at Arroyo Burro Beach County Park.
County Parks is actively seeking other sponsors for BioBags and other amenities at our off-leash canine play areas and beach accesses. If you are interested in being a sponsor, please contact:

Guide Dogs for the Blind
Montecito Pet Hospital has many guide dogs, ”career-change” and retired Guide Dogs that they care for. This relationship between a blind person and their guide dog is so important - our staff understands this relationship and why it is so vital to get a sick or injured service dog back to work.
