Other Educational Opportunities

We offer tours and school visit opportunities all year long.

Come see first-hand how we’re working to provide forever homes for cats while humanely reducing the number of feral cats in our community. If you want to take a tour or if you have a group that would like to stop by, please email us at patti@safehavenforcats.org.

Once you visit, you might just find your own forever friend.

SAFE Haven offers guided tours for children in grades pre-K to 12.

Both fun and educational, a tour provides the opportunity for children to see many adoptable cats and hear about our programs and services.

We would love to design your tour/visit to meet your needs, so please share with us any additional comments, such as what your class is currently studying, what badge or journey the troop is working on, or the impetus for your tour request.
