It is Raining Kittens at County Animal Services

Adoption Deals Offered to Reduce Orphan Population

Santa Barbara County Animal Services has hundreds of kittens at its three shelters. Animal Services is offering a special adoption rate of two for the price of one for kittens up to 6 months old during the month of August. Adopters will get two feline companions and a lifetime of love for only $65.00.

Most of the kittens have been hand raised in loving foster homes and are well socialized. All of the kittens are spayed or neutered and up to date on their vaccinations. Adopters may also microchip their new fur-ever friends for an additional $20 each.

“This is the heart of kitten season and our staff and volunteers work very hard to insure the health and safety of all the kittens in our care. This becomes more difficult when the number of kittens coming into the shelter far outweighs the number of kittens being adopted,” says Jan Glick, Director of Animal Services.

Kittens are very curious and playful so there are many benefits to adopting them in pairs. A single kitten will get bored and may find entertainment in climbing the drapes or chewing on plants. Two kittens will play together until they tire out resulting in less mischief.

Please visit the Santa Maria Animal Center at 548 W. Foster Rd in Santa Maria, the Lompoc Shelter at 1501 W. Central in Lompoc, or ASAP Cats in our Santa Barbara Shelter at 5473 Overpass Rd., in Goleta. Adoption hours at the shelters are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. You can view our adoptable animals by visiting Pet Harbor or or ASAP Cats.
