Socially Conscious Sheltering

Protect your pets. ShelterCare Pet Insurance Programs

THIS SATURDAY September 18th, ASAP joins the national Clear the Shelters campaign to help find a home for EVERY adoptable cat. Join us from 10am-4pm, when all adoption fees will be waived.

1) View our adoptable cats online. Learn more about some of the cats that will be in attendance, including Gracie, featured above (some surprises may be in attendance as well! Kittens will not be attending this weekend's event so our adult cats can be the stars of this show).
2) Fill out our online adoption application in advance if you are interested in adopting a cat. This will help you with step 3!
3) Make an appointment. Appointments are made with an ASAP matchmaker after filling out an adoption application. You may also call 805-683-3368 to set up an appointment.

Walk-ins may be accommodated if appointment slots are available and you may have to wait as appointments are given priority. Only one household will be admitted to enter the shelter at a time. Please remember to wear a mask inside and outside the shelter at all times.

Providing Hope and Saving Lives During Kitten Season

Thanks to the efforts of ASAP's foster volunteers ASAP is able to save the most vulnerable of lives, bringing in dozens of kittens each month throughout kitten season. Kittens of any age—even from day one—are given a fighting chance at life, all thanks to ASAP and your generosity. Watch this year's ASAP video to learn more about the resources it takes to support these precious kittens and the commitment ASAP makes to saving them. To help us continue this critical work, consider making a donation today or send an item from our wish list.
