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

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.

In 2003 my sister and I wanted to help a local ranchowner in Lincoln, CA spay and neuter several dozen feral barn cats. As a result of our efforts we found several litters of tiny kittens. After containing them while their feral moms raised them, we socialized them and had them spayed/neutered; ready for new homes. The effort of finding them new homes was the launching point for what is now FieldHaven. Each year we place 300-400 cats and kittens in homes, spay and neuter over 700 community cats and help countless other cats and their owners through our CAT (community/cat assistance team) program. Each day I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many caring, dedicated and talented staff, volunteers, fellow board members and the supporting public. Please join me in my dream of saving more lives of homeless cats but supporting FieldHaven in any way you can.

The Great!

I became involved with FieldHaven during a Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) project in my neighborhood. I live in a rural area quickly becoming overrun with feral cats. My neighbor started the project and I was happy to jump in. FieldHaven assisted us with traps, training, cages, free spay/neuter assistance, transporation, vacinations, and intake of tame cats. All in all, we processed over 50 cats just from our one street. I was so impressed with their dedication, love for animals, passion to make a difference, and outstanding shelter protocols, that I knew I wanted to be a part of this organization. I've been a volunteer at FieldHaven going on 4 years now. I started out doing TNR for others, and soon moved into Fostering, Adoption Counseling, Outreach, Newsletters, Graphic Assistance, and pretty much anything else they need. I am so proud to be part of the FieldHaven "family" and look forward to growing with the organization. If you've ever thought of volunteering, this is a great organization to be part of. If you've ever thought about adding a feline companion to your family, please check out FieldHaven kitties before you make a decision. We have strict health protocols to ensure you're getting the healthiest kitty possible, and you can't beat the post adoption support. Check out what FieldHaven is all about at www.fieldhaven.com. I think you'll be impressed at the difference a small organization can make.

The Great!

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

TNR, fostering, spay/neuter education, adoptions, outreach, disaster assistance, and helping the community whenever there is a need. FieldHaven is so much more than a "shelter". It is a part of the community and always "giving back".

I first came apon Fieldhaven when I was looking to adopt a cat.... 2 years have gone by since then, and i am proud to say I have 2 beautiful cats from Fieldhaven, and I am also a regular volunteer there. It's hard to believe that such a small orginazation could make such a difference. But they truly do, they have saved thousands of cats and kittens that would have otherwise been running around spreading diseases, having litters, and dying on the street... They are amazing people, and they are saving the world... One cat at a time ;)

The Great!

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

I'm my opinon, the results of this orginazation cannot be measured in how MUCH they do, but how well they do it. They are a small orginazation with a big dream, and skills to deal with any cat situation that might occur. They truly save lives every day.
