SAFE Haven For Cats is not only a cat rescue, they offer so many important services that benefit cats in need in our community. The two main programs are their adoption program and their spay/neuter clinic.
"Founded in 1994, SAFE Haven for Cats is Raleigh’s no-kill shelter and low-cost spay/neuter clinic. Since opening, SAFE Haven has orchestrated the adoptions of more than 10,000 cats and kittens and spayed or neutered over 30,000 animals in our clinic."
SAFE Haven maintains a shelter on Durant Rd in Raleigh and that is where their adoptable cats are housed. In addition to the adoption program and low cost spay/neuter clinic, SAFE Haven has a food pantry to help pet owners in need feed their companion animals. As a 501(c)3 organization, SAFE Haven relies entirely on donations to run all of their programs. They also have an active volunteer program and utilize foster homes for cats that need more attention and care before they are ready for adoption.
SAFE Haven doesn't just help pet cats, they also have a TNVR program to help feral and stray cats. TNVR is a program where cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and then returned to where they were found to slow population growth and end the cycle of cat overpopulation.
Check out Little Bear and Max, a bonded pair that have been with the rescue for a while now and would love to find their fur-ever home! Here’s what their people have to say about them. “Little Bear is a sweet big furry baby, who came to us from out of state with his best cuddle bud, Max. They are bonded and must go home together, furrever. L.B., as we affectionately call him, and Max are living with their amazing foster mom, and are available to adopt from her home. Do you have room in your heart for these precious boys? Contact the shelter to learn more about them and how to meet the two.”
