Cats Haven is a God send to these kitties that might have been put down just because they were old or had a chronic illness. The volunteers and staff here love each and every one of the cats that are here. I know this first hand because I use to be one of the volunteers and I still visit from time to time. Thanks to donations they are able to take care of all the cats needs. Barb founder of the shelter spends all her spare time making jewelry and cat toys and sells them to make more money to help the cats. She also is the one that will be up every few hours to feed orphaned kittens that were pulled from the Animal Control and saved them from being put down just because they lost their Mother. When you walk in you can see just how happy all the cats are here.
