SAFE Haven for Cats is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter dedicated to finding homes for homeless cats and kittens.

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 7,200 cats and kittens and spayed or neutered over 20,000 animals in our clinic.

As a nonprofit organization, SAFE Haven relies heavily on donations from the community to support its lifesaving work and programs. To maximize the percentage of every dollar going directly to the care of the cats, we have only nine full-time and three part-time paid staff members. All other work and love comes from our dedicated volunteers.
