Adopt a Cat

I'm Here Holding Out For My Hero
These are special cats currently waiting at our shelter for the right person!
Sometimes they eat a different food or take a daily pill, sometimes they are shy and need a little extra TLC and sometimes they are a little older. These cats may require more care, time or energy but they will offer more love, gratitude and satisfaction to their chosen person.

You can stop by the shelter to meet these cats who just need a little extra TLC. You may just fall in love.

We very unexpectedly lost our cat Frosty to a heart disease in March and decided that a life without a cat is not a good one. After viewing some pictures and information on different cats on the SAFE Haven site, we decided to adopt two and went to the shelter. It...
