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.
