Adoptable Pet of the Week

Pacer


Pacer is a petite three-year-old short-haired cat who is initially shy but warms up quickly. She is black with “smoke rings” all over her fur and light green eyes. She will offer you lick kisses that will turn into a bath if you let her! She likes high places and is also a snuggler. Pacer would ideally, because of her shyness and sweetness, like another feline companion to depend on in her permanent home.

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

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).
