We’re Making a Difference Together!

In the first quarter of 2021-2022, we’ve been able to make a big impact for the cats in need in our community. We found homes for 298 cats plus spayed/neutered 1,258 cats and dogs!

That continues the work you helped us make possible last year. In the last 12 months we:

  • Found homes for 941 cats and kittens through our adoption program
  • Sterilized almost 2,000 kitties in the SAFE Care Clinic
  • Completed our 12,000th adoption!
  • Began a partnership with our friends at the Purr Cup Café, Raleigh’s first and only cat café

Learn all about our work in our Annual Report.

There’s Still Time!

Here’s an easy way to help our kitties every month if you’re a state employee: the State Employees Combined Campaign. It’s still happening so just pick code #2566 to help the kitties! Click here to set up your donations for 2022.

It’s a Match

Your donation can make even more of a difference when you donate by the end of the year. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we can match donations up to $150,000. Make your donation now!


We’re seeking volunteers to help staff an informational table and silent auction registration/checkout at North Carolina’s premier anthropomorphic community event – Bewhiskered on November 12-14 at the Marriott at Research Triangle Park. In addition to helping share information about SAFE Haven, each volunteer will get a pass to the event to enjoy the convention’s shopping, entertainment and dance competitions. Come with a warm heart, big smile and be ready to share information about the CATS!
