Jan. 2011 – Community CareGiver Spotlight: SAFE Haven for Cats

SAFE Haven for Cats
is a temporary refuge for the Triangle area’s Stray, Abandoned, Feral and Endangered cats and kittens.

Our goal is to find permanent, SAFE, and loving homes for each of these worthwhile and affectionate animals, and continues until no animal in our community is homeless.

Since 1994, SAFE Haven has successfully found homes for nearly 5,000 cats. These forgotten animals are brought into our program for medical care, socialization, and the love of many volunteers and staff. Prior to adoption, each animal is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Our team of approximately 80 volunteers ensures that each cat has a clean cage and bedding, fresh food and water, toys, and plenty of attention on a daily basis.

SAFE Haven always has a need for animal-loving volunteers. Our volunteers guarantee the success of our mission. We have two-hour cleaning shifts every day of the week. Our volunteers have opportunities to meet other people who share something in common, learn new skills, participate in special events, and receive the endless appreciation of our staff and adoration from our cats.

As a 100-percent nonprofit shelter receiving no municipal, state or federal funding, SAFE Haven relies entirely upon the generous donations and support of our community and friends. Through our participation in community events and two of our own significant fundraising events (including our annual Tuxedo Cat Ball) we are able to raise both awareness of our cause and necessary financial support. Our growing donor base is steadfast, generous, and reaches worldwide.
