Adoptable Pet of the Week


Lola is a charmer! She has been at ASAP since kitten season started, competing with a plethora of kittens means she’s been overlooked! Lola is a spry teenager with a half orange-half brown tabby head and a white mask, belly, and paws. She also has a patched back and ringed tail. She enjoys head scratches and will chase anything that moves. Curious, active, and playful, she will entertain you with her explorations. Because she has a pink nose, Lola must be indoor-only.

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).

For more information, visit ASAP at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Rd. Adoption hours are Monday-Friday, 9-a.m.-4:45 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, visit or call (805) 683-3368
