Our Featured Pet..
PET OF THE MONTH - $5!
Our Pet Of The Month for October is Quinn. She is an extremely gentle and affectionate girl who has a wonderfully mild temperament and gets along with other cats and dogs. She has been in and out of Purrfect Haven for 3 years and we can't figure out why, because she is fantastic. Please consider giving her a final and forever home.
October 21 is the Friends Helping Friends event at all Boscov's stores! You can get passes from us for only $5 (100% of which goes to helping care for our cats). The passes entitle you to 25% percent off pretty much everything in the store. So even if you only spend $20 you will make your money back! Please pass the news on to friends/family/coworkers and post on your Facebook, etc. If you are interested in getting a pass just give Karen a call at 302-233-2341. We hope to see you there!
Who We Are
Purrfect Haven Cat Rescue is a private not-for-profit 501(3)c no-kill charitable organization created in 2005 to help prevent the abuse of companion animals through EDUCATION, ADOPTION, MEDICAL and SOCIAL REHABILITATION, and SPAY AND NEUTER PROGRAMS. We are devoted to rehabilitating and placing abandoned and homeless cats and kittens through our network of foster homes and public adoptions.
While the majority of our rescued pets are cats we do at times also have dogs available for adoption. Please see our list of available pets for who we currently have waiting for new homes.
Adopting a friend
WHY SHOULD YOU ADOPT FROM PURRFECT HAVEN? We specialize in rescuing the animals that other organizations are unable to help. Many of our cats come to us with medical and behavioral problems that while treatable, would over-burden the capabilities of large, high-volume shelters. These animals need the individual attention offered to all of our residents through our foster home network and working relationship with local veterinary hospitals. ADOPTING A PET FROM PURRFECT HAVEN ALLOWS US TO SAVE ANOTHER ANIMAL THAT WOULD OTHERWISE HAVE NO CHANCE.
All of our cats have been fostered in private homes and will never go up for adoption straight off the street. We know their personalities and preferences, likes and dislikes, and any special needs they may have. This information helps us to ensure that each cat is matched with the perfect family during the adoption process.
Active duty military families must provide proof of a prior PCS with a pet in order to adopt. For all applicants a veterinary reference is required, you may not declaw our cats, and we recommend that all kittens go to homes where there is another playful, friendly cat. In most cases adoptions are limited to within 50 miles of Dover, DE. For more information on our adoption guidelines please email us.
Our adoption package includes spay/neuter, current Rabies and Distemper vaccines, microchipping, FeLV/FIV test, and parasite control. You also get a starter kit filled with goodies such as a free bag of premium cat food, bag of cat toys, a feather flyer, Yeoww! catnip sample, and more! We also give you all the information you will need to help introduce your new pet into your family and home and will provide you with behavioral help for the life of the pet should any difficulties arise in the future.
Our standard cat adoption donation is $90, with purebred and purebred x cats ranging from $125-175, and dogs $170. We occasionally run specials in honor of holidays or special events so be sure to check in frequently! We do require an application for all adoptions along with a veterinary reference (we will accept one from a family member if this is your first pet), just email us and we can send you an application.
If you are interested in one of our cats, please email us!
Come Visit Us!
While all of our animals are initially raised and housed in private foster homes, some of them eventually go up for adoption at the Dover Petsmart, DE. Please feel free to come look around and say hello to them all. Private appointments will be made to allow you and your family to spend some private time with the animal in our play room getting to know each other better.
Many of our cats are still living with their foster families so if you don't find the perfect family companion out at our center in the Petsmart store please check our website. All the animals we have currently available will be there with pictures and a biography to help answer your questions.
