There’s a Cat for That! Download for Free this Weekend Only



On Aug. 15 and 16, Santa Barbara County is going to the cats!

Santa Barbara County Animal Services is joining forces with ASAP, CAPA, the Santa Maria Valley Humane Society, the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society and the Santa Barbara Humane Society to offer the first ever county-wide free cat adoption weekend.

This year’s theme is: “There’s a Cat for That: Download an Adult Cat for FREE!”

Need an alarm clock? There’s a cat for that.

Need a snuggle buddy, plate cleaner or a laundry inspector? There’s a cat for that.

All cats six months and older can be “downloaded” for free; no password needed.

This special adoption download is available for just one weekend, Aug. 15 and 16. This is your chance to adopt an adult cat (6 months and older) for absolutely free, except for a lifetime commitment to provide love and care to a healthy, adoptable shelter cat.

Approved adoption applications are required and support is provided to ensure a smooth transition to new cat ownership.

Kittens under six months will be available for in-app purchase of two for the price of one.

These free downloads are available for a limited time only. The Santa Maria Animal Center, La PAWS Adoption Center and ASAP will be open Saturday, Aug. 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

With six shelter locations participating, adopters will have hundreds of cats to choose from. Each cat has been custom designed to meet your unique needs.
