Weekly Poll
What do you think of the Santa Maria Valley Humane Society merging with the Santa Barbara Humane Society?

I don't care who runs it, as long as they're still helping animals.
Hopefully it settles their funding issues.
It won't affect me. I get all my pets from breeders.
The entire county should operate as one Humane Society.
