Everyone’s favorite 3.5 year old Domestic Shorthair, Snow has been spending most of her time as ASAP’s official lobby cat. If you’ve visited the shelter recently, it’s impossible to miss Snow’s familiar greeting! Snow is a very sweet girl to those she trusts, and it doesn’t take long for her to feel comfortable — but she does have boundaries and she’s clear when she sets them.

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.


Penelope is fixed and vaxxed and ready for adoption! Little Penelope had a rough start, but she is now a 10 week old, adorable, fun, thriving pup! She is thought to be Jack Russel mixed with Havanese and Boston Terrier. But whatever she is mixed with she is 100% sweet!


Do you hear what I hear? Winston is an incredible 4 month old Aussie, Lab, German Shepherd mix who is very smart and very loving. He is full of puppy kisses, puppy dog tails, and ears, but most of all love! He can be shy at first, but once he warms up, he will keep you giggling with his puppy antics. If you are looking for an adventure buddy, Winston will be a great partner once he’s fully vaxxed and ready to go out in public.
