Sasha is a 9-year-old female gray-and-white domestic short-haired cat. She’s a loving kitty looking for a quiet home where she can stretch out on a lap and purr. Sometimes she gets so excited when you pet her that she gives gentle “love bites.” She’s perfect for an experienced owner who knows how to speak “cat.”

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

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 are 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 adoptable; medical and drug coverage through ASAP’s vet for 2 weeks beyond adoption, if necessary; temperament evaluation; and cat carrier (you can save the county money by bringing your own).
