Adoptable Pet of the Week

Wally is a three-year-old short-haired brown tabby. This big bruiser may look tough but if you move in slow motion with gentle caresses, you will be rewarded by him laying his big Sumatran tiger head in your hand. Once he gets to know you, Wally enjoys chin, cheek, and neck rubs. His yellow-green eyes may look scared and a little sad, but they warm and glow once he knows you’re trustworthy. He is very food motivated and has been clicker trained to shake hands and high five, for a treat of course. He has had several cage mates and would do well in a multi-cat home.


To meet Wally and other cats needing loving homes, visit ASAP at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road. Hours: Weekdays, 9 a.m.-4:45 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.. For more information, call the ASAP office at 683-3368 or visit their website at
