Basil's Big Bash is Back!

ASAP Cats 2021 Virtual Bash was very successful and raised the largest profit for the cats and kittens in our care than any previous event. This spring, we are very happy to gather in-person for Basil's Big Bash on the evening of Saturday, June 11th in the beautiful Rotunda at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort.

This is our first, in-person gala since 2019, and the Hilton Santa Barbara offers us an iconic location to celebrate our sucess in providing care for the many homeless cats and kittens in Santa Barbara County. Fabulous food and drink, and live and silent auctions will be featured, along with this year's ASAP video, and—of course—the opportunity to dance the night away with all of the other cool cats in attendance!

The success of Basil's Big Bash starts with our evening's sponsorships and ticket sales. Sponsorships and individual tickets are now available online!

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.
