Adoptable Pet of the Week

Malaya


Malaya is an 8-year-old short-haired black tortoise-shell who is awaiting adoption through the Animal Shelter Assistance Program. This shy Miss is a great conversationalist who will chirp at her favorite humans and even carry on a dialogue. Don’t startle her but approach slowly and pet her head, and she will reward you with a great purr!

Malaya is available for adoption at ASAP.

Malaya is available for adoption at ASAP.

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

Animal Shelter Assistance Program (ASAP) is a volunteer-based, nonprofit 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).
