We have been associated with cats haven for about 15 years. Barb does an amazing job with special needs cats, rehabilitating those who would benefit from their own home and providing a safe, non-institutional home for life should that be required. The shelter is clean and bright and the cats are free to roam the house (unless medically required to be caged). We are Indy's oldest no-kill shelter and the success stories are both heart-warming and inspiring. It's an honor to be involved with such an amazing organization with an amazing group of volunteers.
