Who We Are
Cat Haven is a non-profit organization located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It was established in 1999 to rescue, foster, adopt cats and kittens into loving homes. In just a few years, we have rescued and found homes for thousands of cats and kittens. We make it possible for area residents to find the perfect cat or kitten by hosting off-site adoption events every Saturday in the Baton Rouge area. Our Adoption Center is open for adoptions Monday through Saturday from 12-noon until 6PM. All cats adopted through Cat Haven have been spayed or neutered, tested for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus, have received age-appropriate vaccinations, and have been microchipped for identification.
Cat Haven offers spay/neuter help to the public for their personally owned cat(s). Our program is called Fix-A-Feline. To qualify for this program, the cat(s) needing assistance must be your personally owned cat, not a stray or feral cat. For assistance with strays or ferals, please contact ProjectPurr. Click here to fill out our Fix-A-Feline Application.
Cat Haven has a small staff and depends on volunteers, members and donors to continue its work. We hold fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for our program and operating expenses. Our annual gala, held here in Baton Rouge, focuses on our building requirements.
Cat Haven also relies on local veterinarians that participate in our program. They provide quality health care at reduced rates so that we are able to give our cats and kittens the healthy start they need before going to their new homes.
Cat Haven is a Louisiana nonprofit organization with a member Board of Directors that is responsible for all aspects of Cat Haven's operations and is accountable to our membership.
Adopting a friend
To adopt a cat from Cat Haven, you must be 18 years of age or older, complete an adoption application, speak with an adoption counselor, pay an adoption fee of $90.00 and sign an adoption contract in which you promise to care for the cat in a humane manner for its lifetime. In the event you can no longer keep your cat, you must notify Cat Haven and return the cat to our organization.
