The Rescue Express brings Houston's "Harvey Cats" to ASAP!

California is no stranger to natural disasters. Fires, quakes—and recently even microbursts!—can have disastrous effects, but our community always comes together in times of need.

Last week ASAP sent our vet tech, Greg Calderon, on a flight to Houston to assist with transporting cats, dogs, puppies, and kittens back to ASAP and other local rescue groups. These animals were already available for adoption in Houston, and were brought to California to make room for homeless or stranded pets directly affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Click here for a recent KEYT spot, featuring a brief interview with Greg.

ASAP opened its doors to 42 (!!) cats and kittens, and volunteers and staff have been working hard to make sure they are all healthy and ready for adoption. Stay tuned for more information about a special adoption event coming in October.

These special felines will have a second chance at a new life and a forever home here, and ASAP needs your help! Please consider making a donation right now to help ASAP raise $5,000 and provide much needed care for these special cats and kittens. Your support means everything. To date - we've already raise nearly $3,000!

You can also help ASAP by donating items directly from our Amazon Wish List.

About ASAP's 2017 Video - ASAP's Hospice Program

by Pamela Gray

Imagine your cat growing old in the home she’s known all her life; curled up in a heated bed to soothe her aching body, being served her favorite treats to whet her appetite, trying to climb into your lap even though she needs you to lift her up. She may be weaker, slower, thinner, but you’re still by her side, caring for her and giving her unconditional love.

Now imagine that you are no longer there to care for her.

Each year, thousands of senior cats arrive at shelters nationwide, surrendered by owners who can’t afford their medical needs, or abandoned by those who view them as a burden…with nothing left to offer. Shelters without alternative resources have no choice but to euthanize these feline senior citizens.

But at ASAP, we see the wisdom and love in their eyes, and know that these faithful companions deserve our compassionate care. Tonight’s video highlights our Hospice Foster Program, which gets senior cats out of the shelter and back into loving homes.

Giving a cat their FIRST home is a gift, but providing them with their last, is the most PRECIOUS gift of all.
