Bindi


Bindi is a 2-year-old female brown tabby domestic short-haired cat. She doesn’t like other cats, so shelter life has been stressful for her. A recent move to the lobby has allowed her true personality to shine. Bindi now greets visitors at the door and loves to give head butts!

To meet Bindi and other cats needing loving homes, visit ASAP at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road. Hours are 9:00 a.m.-4:45 p.m. Monday through Saturday (open until 7 p.m. on Wednesdays) and 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call the ASAP office at (805) 683-3368 or visit their website at asapcats.org.

The 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, and 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 adoptabl; 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).
