Adoptable Pet of the Week


Indigo is a longhaired black cat who is awaiting adoption through the Animal Shelter Assistance Program. He will really appreciate a home of his own as he was abandoned and lived for a time on the street. Hence he will make a great indoor/outdoor cat (if you live in a coyote-free neighborhood), although he might prefer being the only cat in your life. Indigo is super affectionate and will give lick kisses and gentle love bites. He’ll rub his cheeks all over you and is particularly fond of rubbing heads and “cleaning” faces. Still playful at seven years, this boy enjoys batting around his toy mouse and anything else that moves. And he adores being brushed and pampered!


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).

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 Rd. Adoption hours are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m.-4:45 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, visit or call 805-683-3368
