Basil's Big Bash was a wonderful success! We are SO grateful to all of our ASAP community who supported this year's Bash with a sponsorship, attendance, auction bidding, and donations all in support of ASAP's cats and kittens! We are putting the final details together on our wrap up, and will be sending follow up to all of our auction winners. We'll also be posting a recording of the event later in the week, along with this year's ASAP video which premiered at the Bash.

If you missed the event you can still make a difference! Donate today to help, especially now when kitten season is at its peak!

While our shelter is closed to the public, we are still here to help!

ADOPT! We are still available for remote adoptions. Companionship is only a click away!
Consider temporarily fostering a cat! Short-term fostering ensures that cats will spend time in a cozy, loving home while waiting for their forever family as our shelter remains closed to the public.
