My twin cats, Moe and Larry, are from Cats Haven. They are 16 years old. Larry died in May 2015. Until that day Moe and Larry eere never separated from each other. Cats Haven never separated them from each other to ease adoption. They look after cats' wellbeing. My son calls Ms. Barbara and staff there "angels". I agree with him. Once you see how genuinely they care for every single cats under their care, you will plainely see it why they are "angels". Thanks to them, I have been blessed with Moe and Larry.
I had the opportunity to visit the house that was used to shelter their cats several years ago. I was able to convince the management at a former employer to donate some of the money we had raised to Cat's Haven. Wonderful organization that is doing tremendous work in the Indianapolis area.
