I am very fortunate to serve on the Board of Directors of Fieldhaven Feline Rescue which handles each cat with love/respect. Their shelter is cutting edge but more importantly they work with an undeniable amount of caring for each and every cat that crosses their door. Their philisophy is that cat and animal care is vital for now just the animal but the communtiy as well. Education is the key and the committment to which they fulfill their work is without compromise.

Fieldhaven Feline Rescue is a wonderful, caring organization that does so much more than placing rescue cats with forever families. They give outstanding care to the cats and recognize each cat for its unique personality and needs. They really care about their cats and make sure the cats are going to suitable homes before an adoption takes place. They also do follow-up to make sure the placement is going well. When I adopted my kitten she had a large folder showing the medical care she needed. It was amazing to me that my perfectly healthy cat had gone through so much. Fieldhaven really went the extra mile to take care of her. She was in a foster family setting and they were wonderful too. Each cat is also neutered and microchipped before adoption and a free vet visit is given to be used the first week of adoption just to make sure everything is okay. The cats who are rescued are really lucky and so are the families who get the cats. The staff is so wonderful and caring and I am grateful to them for uniting me with my youngest family member.

The heart and soul of FieldHaven can't truly be measured. Each time a challenge arises it is met with the grace and determination of a small army of people so committed to the welfare of cats and this community that they just don't hear "it can't be done". It continues to be my honor to work with and for an organization that never stops trying to be the best they can be. They inspire me every day.

I have had the opportunity to visit rescues and shelters all over the world, and I can say that without a doubt that FieldHaven is the best one I have ever seen! The spaces for the cats are big, clean, and safe. They have really figured out how to have the best interests of the cats at heart! It has been so much fun volunteering there.

The Great!

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Be closer to my home. :)

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

YES! Having just moved from out of state it has allowed me to make friends, and do something that I know has a positive impact on many lives.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I always feel welcome and valued when I walk in the door. It is huge for me because as a recent cancer survivor, there were lots of things I could not do, and then to move on top of it, I really felt lost and alone until I started volunteering at FieldHaven. Now I feel appreciated, valued, and I have made many friends there. I take everyone up there I can!

I have been a volunteer with FieldHaven for over 5 years and the experience has been life changing. FieldHaven is one of the very few rescues that I know of in the Sacramento area that goes past adoption and provides community education and special programs directed at feral “community cats”. As part of the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) team I have personally been involved in trapping and spaying over 800 cats in our community. FieldHaven helps educate communities on how to manage feral populations by getting them spayed and vaccinated and reaping the benefits of rodent control in return for embracing a healthy, controlled population of free roaming community cats as part of their neighborhood. FieldHaven also runs a Barn Cat program to relocate feral cats from dangerous locations to safer locations with caretakers. The more time I volunteer at FieldHaven, the more inspired I am to take on more tasks. The board values every volunteer and client and listens to every suggestion and values our opinions. Everyone is very dedicated and the support and friendship offered by this organization has made it feel like an extended “family”.

FieldHaven will take in and make every effort to save those hard-to-place cats and kittens and give them shelter until adopted. As an example, we took in two orange tabby kittens that were found in a garbage dump. They were covered in feces, ringworm and fleas. They had been turned over to a local vet, who transported them to a local SPCA. Instead of euthanizing them, they contacted us on the chance that we could save them. They are thriving now! We do not euthanize. We have won the Best Non-Profit in the city of Lincoln, CA, for several consecutive years now. We have a small paid staff -- the rest of the "employees" are all volunteers. We have an extensive outreach program, enabling us to reach those who aren't able to come to our shelter. We also have an extensive on-line library of reference articles, and have referred many callers to specific writeups there. One of our main goals is education, as we make every effort to ensure responsible pet ownership. Another is our SNAP (spaying and neutering) program, offering low-cost procedures for our community's cats. We even transport them to and from the clinic, enabling those who have set working/commitment hours to have procedures done during those days.

In the 5 years I have been a volunteer with FieldHaven's feral cat program, we have rescued over 800 cats and kittens and gotten them safe and loving homes. FieldHaven takes great pride in the care and socializing of the cats & kittens they receive to be sure they are put in homes where they will be loved and safe and be a wonderful companion for the person or family who adopts them. We also help our community get their pets spayed & neutered so there is not a population of unwanted cats running loose causing health problems.

I have adopted 2 kittens from Fieldhaven. One in Dec 2010 and one in 2009. They took the time to get to know my family and make sure our kitten would be a good fit not only with me, but with my household. They also cared to make sure WE were right for the CAT and could meet the cats needs. We chose to go with Fieldhaven vs an SPCA or other shelter due to the fact that cats and kittens are as often as possible placed in foster homes. So when they match a cat with a family they actually know what they are doing. My 2009 kitten ended up having a medical condition that was impossible to detect early on, but they were professional and helpful in getting him treatment, and they were also very supportive when it came time for us to put him to sleep. The professionalism we have encountered can't be matched. The love the volunteers show the animals can't be beat and both my babies were (are) perfect for us. Thank you Fieldhaven!

Fieldhaven has been like a second home for me ever since I became a volunteer in August of 2006. I have loved the friendships that I have been able to form with other volunteers and with the staff members as well. This is not to mention the many many cat friends that I have had at Fieldhaven that I have help find their forever home. It does not matter whatever other problems that I might be going through each week, because I know once I am on my way to Fieldhaven I can almost close the door to the rest of the world around me and it's problems. This allows me to just have tons of fun each Monday when I visit Fieldhaven and spend time with the staff members, volunteer friends, and of course all of my feline friends as well. This is exactly why Fieldhaven is a very special place for me and I am very proud to be one of thier volunteers

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Every adoption is celebrated as a victory for every cat that is adopted. I have seen as a volunteer how hard that Fieldhaven works to help as many cats and kittens that they possibly can. This is truly a no kill shelter.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The staff truly knows what they are doing and I completely6 trust the leadership. This organization is extremely well run

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being able to be a part of a volunteer team that will do anything to help all cats get adopted

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff is extremely knowlegeable and friendly at the same time. They are easy to talk to no matter what. The volunteers truly believe in the old saying where there is a will there is a way and they prove this with each adoption.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

For One thing we would have a brand new state of the art shelter and we would never have to worry about turning a cat away, because of lack of space

Ways to make it better...

There is no way to make my volunteer experience any better. I love Fieldhaven and I always will.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Educating the people about spaying and neutering. We can talk about it untill we are blue the face, but the fact is that not everyone wants to listen.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Fieldhaven is by far the best Nonprofit that I have ever volunteered for.
