Animal Services Offering 2-for-1 Kitten Adoptions

The county's $65 fee includes vaccinations and spaying or neutering

Santa Barbara County Animal Services has hundreds of kittens at its three shelters and is offering a special adoption rate of two for the price of one for kittens up to 6 months old during August.

Adopters will get two feline companions and a lifetime of love for only $65.

Most of the kittens have been raised in loving foster homes and are well socialized. All of the kittens are spayed or neutered and up to date on their vaccinations. Adopters may also microchip their new fur-ever friends for an additional $20 each.

“This is the heart of kitten season, and our staff and volunteers work very hard to ensure the health and safety of all the kittens in our care,” Animal Services Director Jan Glick said. “This becomes more difficult when the number of kittens coming into the shelter far outweighs the number of kittens being adopted.”

Kittens are very curious and playful, so there are many benefits to adopting them in pairs. A single kitten will get bored and may find entertainment in climbing the drapes or chewing on plants. Two kittens will play together until they tire out, resulting in less mischief.

Visit the Santa Maria Animal Center at 548 W. Foster Road in Santa Maria, the Lompoc Shelter at 1501 W. Central in Lompoc, or ASAP Cats in the Santa Barbara Shelter at 5473 Overpass Road in Goleta. Adoption hours at the shelters are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

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!
