Here are some ways you can help:
Volunteering at the Shelter
The Safe Haven could not exist without our wonderful volunteers who are our most valuable asset. We are always looking for enthusiastic, reliable people to help with our cat care.

Please email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be contacted to set up an orientation.
Cleaning is done daily in all cat areas. Litter boxes must be scooped and cleaned; blankets, bedding and cat stands brushed off; sweeping and mopping of floors; filling food and fresh water; and many other tasks that make the Haven the special place that it is for the cats in our care.
