June is Adopt-a-Cat Month at County Animal Services

Meet your purrr-fect match and save on adoption fees through the month

To celebrate Adopt-a-Cat Month, Santa Barbara County Animal Services is offering a month of cat promotions.

For the month of June, the $55 adoption fee on all cats older than six months has been reduced $10, or $20 for any black or black-and-white cats. Animal Services also will offer microchips to cats for $10. Microchips can be implanted at any of the county’s three animal shelters from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary.

Santa Barbara County Animal Services will be partnering with Companion Animal Placement Assistance (C.A.P.A.), the Santa Barbara County Animal Care Foundation and the Animal Shelter Assistance Program to host several special events throughout June.

» From noon to 4 p.m. June 14, the Lompoc Shelter and Santa Maria Animal Center will be hosting “A Cat and a Hat.” Each adopter will receive a free hat with an adoption, and each adopted cat will receive a free microchip.

» From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 20, the Lompoc Shelter and Santa Maria Animal Center will be hosting a “Black Tie Affair.” Each cat that is adopted will receive a rhinestone collar.

» From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 27, ASAP Cats will be hosting an Adoption Faire at the Santa Barbara Shelter. All cat adoptions for cats older than six months will be discounted $25. ASAP access members also will receive a free pair of ASAP socks with an adoption.

All three county shelters are open for adoptions from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday for adoptions. The shelters are at 5473 Overpass Road in Santa Barbara, at 1501 W. Central in Lompoc or at 548 W. Foster Road in Santa Maria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
