Come Party With the Cool Cats on June 3rd, at Basil’s Big Bash!


We are thrilled to announce our 4th Annual Basil’s BIG Bash! As you know, The Bash has quickly become a much anticipated event for everyone committed to saving Santa Barbara County’s cats—and raises approximately 20% of our annual operating expenses!


Not only is The Bash the best party in town, it generates critical funds to save the lives of homeless cats and kittens in Santa Barbara County! Join the cool cats on Saturday, June 3, 2017, from 5:00–9:30pm at the beautiful QAD campus overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Guests will enjoy a reception with wine and hors d’oeuvres, a feisty live auction, light dinner, and music and dancing under the stars with local band AREA 51. We want YOU there—our most devoted ASAP supporters—to help us celebrate our amazing work saving feline lives in our community!


Tickets to The Bash are available online or by calling 805 722-5452. They are $100 each, and individual tickets are not tax-deductible donations. We anticipate selling out again this year, so make haste to reserve your spot for this cool cat party!


Are you a long-time ASAP friend, or maybe a new but enthusiastic supporter? Then consider becoming a Big Bash Sponsor, an opportunity to make our party an even more successful fundraiser and to strut your stuff as a champion for saving feline lives! Sponsorships are available online now, or by calling ASAP's Director of Development and Program Services at (805) 637-5949.


One of our most anticipated live auction items is the “Instant Wine Cellar”—100 bottles of delicious wine to the top bidder! We depend on our fans, like YOU, to donate wine so that 100% of the proceeds benefit the cats! Wine donations can be dropped off at the ASAP Shelter during normal business hours—our only request is that each bottle retail for at least $15-20.


We have some crazy fun raffle items this year! Check out the descriptions of our raffle items below. You can buy tickets online along with your event ticket, call us at 805 683-3368, or swing by ASAP and our volunteers will be happy to assist you with raffle tickets. Just $5/ticket or a book of 5 tickets for $20—don't miss out on the chance to win these fantastic prizes and support ASAP's cats!!
Note: You do not need to attend the event to participate in the raffle.


If you have room in your family for just one more (or two!), then visit ASAP, BUNS, Santa Barbara Animal Shelter, Santa Maria Animal Center, and La Paws Animal Shelter on Saturday, April 29 to adopt an adult cat, dog, or rabbit for FREE!

In the spirit of Rosie the Riveter, and with the generous support of our donor, Lyn Hock, all adoption fees will be waived for adult cats (and bunnies and dogs, too). With the motto “We CAN Save Them All”, the goal of this free adoption day is to finish with no adoptable animals left in our County’s three shelters.


Choose ASAP as your AmazonSmile charity, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible items. All you have to do is select ASAP (Animal Shelter Assistance Program of Santa Barbara) as your AmazonSmile charity once. Then remember shop Amazon at!
