Celebrating 25 Years of Saving Lives

In the past 25 years we have saved more than 10,000 cats and fixed 30,000 felines with our low-cost spay/neuter services. That’s 40,000 feline lives changed with your help. YOU are the secret to our success.

Emergency Planning & Your Pets

We never want to think about what we would do if disaster struck, but we need to! Learn how to protect your family (human and animal) at this FREE Feline Fundamentals session on July 23. 

No Hump Day Wednesdays in July!

Free your male kitty from the responsibility of fatherhood! Every Wednesday during July, the SAFE Care Clinic is offering neuter surgeries for only $25 – a savings of $60!

We're Closing Early

We’re closing at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 13 so we can honor our volunteers who do so much for our SAFE Haven kitties! We’ll reopen as usual on Sunday, July 14.
