Adoptable Pets of the Week

PeeWee, Angel, and Inky


PeeWee, Angel, and Inky are a special trio of cats awaiting adoption through the Animal Shelter Assistance Program. They were discovered as kittens in a field over three years ago, and were found malnourished, skittish, and in poor health. Now they are friendly, happy, and healthy. Sadly, their human passed away and they’ve been entrusted to our care. To help keep them together, they are available for a very special group adoption fee.

PeeWee, Angel, and Inky are a special trio of cats awaiting adoption.

To meet this trio and other available cats needing loving homes, visit ASAP at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road. Hours are 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 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).
