SEE Is For Cats

 Patalano_02 Patalano_01

This is Patalano. He’s a pretty cool cat – sweet, easygoing and affectionate. Currently, he’s at Safe Haven Cat Shelter & Clinic, awaiting his forever home. And while I’d love to sell you on the positives of adopting Patalano (and dozens like him), this is more about what happened to this hepcat when he came to the no-kill shelter. (more…)

Vote Early And Often!

Yes, VOTE!!!  It may be an off election year but your vote couldn’t be more important!

Seriously, this is a legitimate and personal plea.  The Animal Rescue Site (a marvelous web page for helping feed animals in need) is offering a $300,000 shelter challenge, which could mean a $5,000 grant for some lucky animal shelter out there.

As you may know, I volunteer at SAFE Haven For Cats, a fantastic no-kill shelter for cats and kittens in Raleigh, NC.  For those folks who want to make a difference, this shelter is the real deal. Caring people who are determined to finds homes for homeless felines plus lifelong support and education for adopters and a low-cost spay/neuter clinic that’s making real humane progress to help end pet overpopulation.

Personally, I’d love to see SAFE Haven get this $5,000 grant (or even the $1,000 for winning the state) and that’s why I’m asking for your help.

All you have to do is go to The Animal Rescue Site at (worth doing even if you don’t vote for my shelter) and follow these instructions:

1. Click on the purple box to give free food

2. Click the “Vote Now” button (upper area of screen)

3. Scroll down to SEARCH AND VOTE FOR A SHELTER, type in SAFE Haven for Cats, select NC  or 27616 and click search

4. Click “vote” next to the shelter name

5. Confirm your vote by enterting the verification code and click the “confirm vote” button

It’s really easy; you don’t have to register or sign in.  You can even vote every day (the contest ends December 18) and encourage your friends and family and coworkers to do the same!

So please, help out a deserving shelter and vote in the ANIMAL RESCUE SITE $300,000 SHELTER+ CHALLENGE (together with Petfinder).  I would really appreciate it.  The cats would really appreciate it, too.  (They would also appreciate some Pounce treats and a scratch under the chin – but you can’t do that online.)  Thanks!
