Let's Make a Change
Here are some ways you can help.
Volunteering at the Shelter
The Safe Haven could not exist without our wonderful volunteers who are our most valuable asset. We are always looking for enthusiastic, reliable people to help with our cat care. If you can spare an hour or two (or more!) every week to assist, the kitties would love to see you! Please click the link below to fill out our digital volunteer application form. We will review your application and contact you to set up an orientation as soon as we are able.
Cleaning is done daily in all cat areas. Litter boxes must be scooped and cleaned; blankets, bedding and cat stands brushed off; sweeping and mopping of floors; filling food and fresh water; and many other tasks that make the Haven the special place that it is for the cats in our care.
The hours the shelter is open for volunteer shifts are:
Monday – Sunday mornings – 8:00 am – 12:00 pm, noon
Monday – Sunday evenings – 4:30 pm- 6:30 pm
Note: Volunteers under the age of 16 must have adult supervision.
