Chris is a one-year-old male black cat. He came to ASAP from another shelter so our Behavior Team could work with him. He’s done well and has blossomed into a playful and loving boy. He craves the companionship of another active cat and would prefer a quiet home with patient humans. 

Contrary to popular belief, black cats are not unlucky.  In fact, research shows that black cats have an evolutionary advantage due to their natural camouflage. Plus, evidence suggests that they could be less prone to disease than other felines.

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

Logan is a 4 month old Chi mix who was born in rescue. He is such a little love bug, who gives the most gentle kisses. Logan is equal parts smuggler and playful. This handsome guy likes to stay close to his human. This guy would do well in a home with another playful pup.
