About SAFE Haven for Cats…

Twenty-seven years ago, SAFE Haven began in a two-car garage with $800 in cash.

Fast forward to 2022 and SAFE Haven for Cats is one of the State’s leading animal shelters with many programs and services created with just one goal:

To eliminate euthanasia of cats and kittens due to overpopulation. And with the expansion of SAFE Haven’s physical space (completed in 2020) we are closer than ever to that goal.

SAFE Haven’s very successful programs have reached over 51,000 animals to date. Here are a few of our favorite accomplishments from the past year:

  • We found loving homes for 941 cats and kittens at our no-kill brick and mortar shelter.
  • We sterilized 1,923 cats and dogs in our SAFE Care Clinic which has greatly reduced overpopulation in the State by sterilizing over 39,000 cats since opening in 2001.
  • We distributed 11.4 tons of donated food through our Pet Food Pantry, helping 100 families in financially challenging circumstances to feed their cats or dogs.
  • We saved 381 cats from euthanizing shelters.
  • We served 24 counties across North Carolina, representing a quarter of the entire state.
  • We trapped, neutered, and safely released 635 feral cats.
  • We partnered with 290 volunteers, who give their love and time to provide comfort to the cats and kittens in our care. These loyal animal lovers save us over $323,000 in salary dollars per year; funds that are repurposed to subsidize pet food, medical care, and shelter.

 

With your support of the Tuxedo Cat Ball, we can continue to increase these lifesaving services to our community and end euthanasia of healthy cats and kittens.

Look at the happy faces from way back in 2019:

Can you remember back that far?
