Upcoming Adoption Events & Yard Sales - Only at ASAP!

The ASAP Shelter is brimming with kittens and cats, so we're hosting a few upcoming Adoption Events - each from 10am—3pm! Our community is fantastic when it comes to helping us find these cats homes, so we're hoping for a great turnout.

All adult cats are free, and kittens are adopt one, get a second free. We additionally have many foster opportunities available should you like to help find an adult cat their forever home, as well as several volunteer opportunities. Bring your friends, your family, or anyone you know who could use a new loved one!

PLUS — we'll be hosting a yard sale full of antiques and hidden treasures, including glassware, clothes, exotic masks, travel items, and plenty of cat (and dog!) toys and items. Find a new best friend in a cat and leave with some new trinkets and tchotchkes!

Shelter Visits

Visits to ASAP are available Saturdays from 11am - 3pm and Tuesday - Thursday from 1pm - 4pm. All other times require an appointment.

Adoptable Cats & Kittens

Most of ASAP's adoptable cats are in foster homes. You can view adoptable cats online, and make an appointment by filling out our adoption application. Our adoption team will be in touch! You may also 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. Sign up to be a Short Term Foster Here. For more information, please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .


The needs of the cats don’t stop with COVID-19, and we need your support to provide food, shelter and veterinary services. For donations of items, please leave them at the shelter on our front porch area, where they will be picked up by staff/volunteers. Financial donations can be made online or mailed to: ASAP Cats, PO Box 357, Goleta, CA 93116.
