Adoptable Pet of the Week


Sunny, a two-year-old long-haired calico, needs a new home as her elderly owner could no longer care for her. She is very affectionate, gets along with people, and loves being petted and pampered. Sunny is tired of shelter life and looking forward to roaming in an indoor home of her own where she can reign as the only feline in your life. Presently, Sunny spends most of her time in the ASAP reception area, greeting visitors.


Animal Shelter Assistance Program (ASAP) is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization that takes care of the cats and kittens at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter. ASAP provides humane care for these animals and works to eliminate the practice of euthanizing them for reasons other than serious health or behavior problems.

For more information, visit ASAP at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road. Adoption hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, visit or call 805-683-3368

The following is included in the adoption fee at ASAP: Spay or neuter surgery, flea treatment, vaccinations, microchipping, health evaluation, including testing for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Cats thought to be 10 years or older receive a full blood panel evaluation, thus assuring that the cat is indeed healthy and adoptable, medical and drug coverage through ASAP’s vet for two weeks beyond adoption, if necessary, Temperament evaluation and cat carrier (you can save the County money by bringing your own).
