Sparky2 is a five-year-old, short-haired, black tortoise-shell who is looking for a home to call her own. She is affectionate and looking for attention, but looking for a home with no other cats or very young children, as she may get overstimulated.
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).
To meet Sparky2 and other available cats for adoption, visit ASAP at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Rd. 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 their website at 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.
