PETS & THE PANDEMIC: Getting Help, Helping Others

In these difficult times, ASAP and our partner organizations are working together to help pets and their guardians.


Click here for information about C.A.R.E. 4 Paws’ mobile veterinary services, and here for assistance with pet supplies, from food to flea control and more!


Our community has rallied to offer foster homes (and permanent adoptions!) to many animals in our county’s shelters. For information on fostering/adopting from ASAP, read on below.

For other species (what? something other than a cat?!) you can search for foster and adoptable animals at the three Santa Barbara County Animal Services shelters here. Placements are by appointment only. Listings indicate which animals are already in foster, but would still be available for adoption. Call the appropriate shelter for the animal in question: Santa Barbara at 805-681-5285, Lompoc at 805-737-775, and Santa Maria at 805-934-6119.

The Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society/DAWG in Buellton is also open for placements by appointment. More information about their animals is available here. To schedule a meet, call 805-688-8224.

BUNS (Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter) is taking information for possible future foster placements, and also has supplies for rabbit owners in need. For assistance call 805-683-0521.

Please donate to help us provide necessary food, supplies and veterinary services for the many cats we are caring for now, and will be getting as kitten season ramps up.
C.A.R.E.4Paws is there to help pet owners facing financial challenges – your support helps them to care for the four-legged friends in our community!
