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”.
