ASAP Launches Homes & Heroes!

Our holiday wish for every cat is to find their forever home, especially around this season of joy and giving. But we know that not everyone has the ability to adopt a cat right now... or perhaps you already have a house full of cats and you want to do even more! So this holiday season we are inviting our feline-loving community to become HEROES!

You might be wondering what it means to be a “hero” to a cat? There are many ways to fulfill this role and change the world for a cat. Our Holiday HOMES & HEROES campaign will launch on Black Friday and run through the end of the year, with the goal of every cat in the shelter having a HOME or a HERO!

Not simply an adoption promotion, HOMES & HEROES is about community engagement. We invite you to visit our shelter and pick out the cat that you will champion. When you become a Holiday HERO, you become an advocate for the cat finding a home: telling your friends and family, spreading the word, posting on social media—truly becoming the HERO in that cat’s story!

Change the life of a cat this holiday season by participating in our Holiday HOMES & HEROES campaign!


Adopt an adult cat for $25 or 2 kittens for $50!


Visit the ASAP shelter to pick out a cat to champion, take photos to share with friends, family and social media, and post your HERO photo on our shelter bulletin board. Make it your goal to help ASAP find a loving, forever home for your championed cat. HEROES will receive a special Holiday Heroes certificate with a photo of your cat, an open invitation to visit their cat at the shelter, and a notification when their cat is adopted. Our suggested HERO donation to support the care of your cat while at the shelter is $100.
