Message from our Founder & President:
“Hope, is born of participation in hopeful solutions” – Marianne Williamson, Author
I have heard this quote a number of times recently and it has really stuck in my head because SAFE Haven for Cats has always been about hope.
Based on our life-saving results this past year, most of you believe in hope too!
Because of your involvement, SAFE Haven is leading our community with solutions for cat overpopulation and unnecessary euthanasia.
This past year:
Thanks to you, we achieved a 46% increase in the number of cats and kittens adopted. 825 stray, abandoned, injured or orphaned cats are alive and happily thriving in their homes.
Through the SAFE Care Spay / Neuter Clinic, 1,859 cats have been sterilized. Best of all, no one is ever turned away from the clinic because they don’t have enough money.
As a partner with 4 local County Animal Shelters, we responded when they were forced to start euthanizing for space. We took 236 cats from these shelters.
We supported 83 families (224 cats and 116 dogs) with food from the Pet Food Pantry (the only one in Wake County). These owners and pets have a much better quality of life because of you.
Through our TNVR assistance program for community cats we sterilized 388, loaned countless traps, and educated with hands-on contributions to many colony caretakers.
As you can see, there are many ways to participate with us in hopeful solutions. On the following pages you will read about actions you can take as a volunteer and advocate. You don’t have to have any special talents just a willingness to help.
With sincere appreciation for everything you do for the animals…
Founder & President
