Today is the first day of furthering our partnership with our neighbors 😸🀝🐰 We are opening our doors, literally, to our shelter surgery suite in order to allow them to spay and neuter bunnies and guinea pigs in there without having to worry about transporting the animals elsewhere. Everything can happen right at 5473 Overpass Rd. 😎 This will allow them to save time, money, and effort in their mission of promoting spay and neutering of rabbits and guinea pigs. We are SO excited to be of help to our partners and to aid in the care of bunnies and guinea pigs πŸ’—

Today we're helping our friends over at Humane Society of Ventura County find the purrfect home for a special kitty!

Meet two year old Pino ✨ Pino arrived at their shelter in the Summer of 2023, as a mama with 5 adorable kittens, after being abandoned in a store parking lot. After months of care in a foster home, her kittens found loving foster families, but Pino is still waiting for her forever home! Pino has blossomed into a playful, loving girl who craves human attention and affection. She's learned to trust, seeking out scratches, snuggles, and treats from her caregivers. While she can be independent and feisty (her survival instincts that have allowed her to get to where she is today) she's also incredibly funny and social. Everyday she's warming up to new relationships with people πŸ’— Pino's ideal home is one where she's the sole furry friend, where she can explore indoors and maybe even enjoy a catio for bird watching and sunbathing. Pino deserves a patient, loving family who understands her slow-to-trust nature and respects her need for space and time to adjust.

If you're ready to open your heart and home to Pino, contact the Foster Coordinator over at Humane Society of Ventura County to arrange a meet and greet in her foster home.

Do you recognize this cat? This cat was brought to our shelter today with no microchip, but he is neutered and seems like he had an owner and was maybe even an indoor cat. He was found in Summerland near Valencia and Banner Ave. He's very friendly and was following people around like he wanted to go home with them. He was with the finder for about a week before coming to us. Please let us know if you know who his owner may be! Contact us at (805)683-3368 or visit us at 5473 Overpass Rd. #101 Santa Barbara, CA 93111.

Meet Our Featured Feline of the Week: Weasley! 😸 Weasley is a brave one year old boy who came to us in need of help. He needed his right hind leg amputated due to a bad fracture. With the help of our incredible wellness team, Weasley got the procedure he needed and is now recovered and ready for some fun! While he may be a bit shy at first, he loves pets and cuddles and will happily accept them! He doesn't seem to be enjoying the shelter too much, so we're hoping his forever home will find him soon, although a foster would also be a helpful next step for him πŸ πŸ’•

If you're interested in meeting the resilient and sweet Weasley, stop by our shelter at 5473 Overpass Rd. #101 Santa Barbara, CA 93111 during our walk-in hours Monday-Friday 1p-4p and Saturday 11a-3p!

Meet Snow our Featured Feline of the Week ❄️ Recognize her? That's because she's been a Featured Feline before. Unfortunately, Snow's current foster parent is embarking on a new journey and unable to take her along. As of THIS Monday, April 8th, Snow will be back at the shelter, eagerly awaiting her chance to charm her way into a loving forever home πŸ₯Ί

Snow is on the lookout for her purr-fect palace (foster or adoption). With one captivating blue eye and one mesmerizing green eye, she's the talk of the town, but she's selective about her entourage. She's seeking a home where she can reign supreme as the one and only furry royalty πŸ‘‘ She's not a fan of sharing her spotlight with other felines, but for the right human, she's all in for cuddles and affection...on her terms, of course! Like any true diva, Snow appreciates attention but prefers to call the shots 😼 She's mastered the art of communicating her desires through subtle feline body language, and she's hoping to find someone who speaks her unique dialect.

Are you the savvy cat whisperer Snow has been waiting for? Do you have what it takes to decode her meows and earn the privilege of sharing your home with this majestic kitty? If so, please fill out a foster or adoption application on our website asapcats.org, linked in our bio, or give us a call at (805)683-3368.

πŸ“’ PLEASE help us spread the word and find Snow the loving home she deserves! SHARE this post with your friends and family, and let's make sure Snow's happily-ever-after begins as soon as possible πŸ‘πŸ’•

Keep your kitty safe this Easter by saying no to lilies! As we welcome the beauty of Spring and prepare for Easter, it's crucial to remember the potential dangers certain items can pose to our beloved feline friends 🐾 This season, let's be mindful of what we bring into our homes, especially when it comes to plants like lilies, which can be toxic to cats.

Did you know that all members of the plant genus Lilium contain a chemical that can harm cat kidneys? Lilies are so poisonous to our whiskered pals that even a nibble on a leaf or petal, licking pollen from their paws, or drinking water from a vase holding cut lilies can lead to kidney failure. Some cats may be more susceptible than others, but it's vital for all cat owners to take precautions by keeping lilies far away from curious paws.

If you suspect your cat has ingested any part of a lily, it's crucial to act fast. Contact the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435 or rush to your local emergency veterinarian immediately. If possible, bring along the plant in question to help your vet provide the most accurate treatment. Let's ensure this Easter season is filled with joy and safety for all our furry companions πŸŒ·πŸ’• Spread the word to fellow pet owners and together, let's keep our kitties happy, healthy, and free from harm!
