The effort comes as a part of Coldwell Banker’s Homes for Dogs project, a partnership with aimed at helping adoptable dogs find loving homes.

“All four Coldwell Banker offices came together and made a difference for 24 pets who now have loving homes,” said Cindy York Shadian, the branch manager of the Montecito and Santa Barbara offices.

During the day of the Wags n Whiskers event on Oct. 13, Coldwell Banker helped seven dogs and two cats find their forever homes and also raised additional funds that covered 15 adoptions at the Santa Ynez Humane Society.

“It was a joy to support the pet adoption as part of Coldwell Banker’s national Homes For Dogs campaign. We look forward to our continued support of this event in the future,” said Jorge DeLeon, branch manager of the Ventura Regional and Oxnard Beach offices of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
