Sweet Kitty and Pups Need Homes!

Dutchess is an 8-year-old torbie female cat. She came to us from another shelter and has been capturing our hearts with her mellow personality and sweet demeanor. Dutchess acts shy but quickly responds to sweet talk with kneading and purrs. It’s easy to see why she’s so popular with our volunteers.

All of our cats are neutered / spayed, treated for fleas, vaccinated, and microchipped. Check out our website asapcats.org for adoptable cats, adoption applications, and to learn more about fostering and volunteer opportunities. You can also email info@asapcats.org or call us at (805) 683-3368.

This adorable little guy is a 10-month-old Chi/Doxie mix who is an absolute snuggle bug. He is loyal and protective and just wants to find his best friend. He loves playing with other playful dogs, and although cautious around small children, loves sitting in laps and getting all the attention. His favorite things are napping in your lap, fetch, and tug. He is house-trained and loves going for walks and rides in the car, especially if you’re headed to Starbucks for a pup cup! He will make a great constant companion.

Buster is a 4-year-old Chiweenie/pug (best guess). He is a super affectionate and happy-go-lucky bundle of joy, the life of any party. He really loves his people, and his favorite things are giving kisses and playing with other dogs. Another playful dog around Buster’s size will be a must for his forever home. Buster is not good with small children due to some traumatic events in his past, but does fine with teenagers. He is housebroken, crate-trained, and amazing with cats!
