Adoptable Pet of the Week

Sasha


Sasha, a 10-year-old Himalayan seal point with a coat like chinchilla and smoke and a black face and white whiskers, is awaiting adoption through the Animal Shelter Assistance Program. A bit shy and skittish at first, when you win her trust she responds with an unending stream of purrs and a flash of her baby blues. Her fondest wish is to be spoiled and coddled and told how beautiful she is while you stroke her gently. Sasha is looking for an adult home and would be perfect for someone with a quiet lifestyle looking for a loving and loyal companion.

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).

To meet Sasha and other available cats needing loving homes, visit ASAP at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Rd. Hours are weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call the ASAP office at 683-3368 or visit their website at asapcats.org.

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.
