250,000 unwanted pets are killed in pounds
and shelters in Australia every year, just because they can't find homes.
These are innocent animals, whose original human companions
did not take responsibility

and the cats would
like to thank the Robertson, Devagnanam, Reddi and Shaw
families for their generous donations. They couldn't
pick just one cat to sponsor, so the donation is to help all!
A very generous donation has been made to the Haven in memory
of Glenda Boscoe, a lady who loved animals all her life.
Gladys, the purring
cat. Gladys is middle aged, loves people and has a sunny out look
on life. She moved in at the shelter, took every day as it comes
and immediately made friends with many of the other cats she shares
her enclosure with and she is always available for a cuddle. Gladys
is a relaxed cat and would suit in any kind of household but Gladys
has got the aids virus. The virus has not taken hold but being a
FIV cat she must live inside, her worming, vaccinations must be
up to scratch, she should she her vet twice a year, she can live
with other cats provided they are vaccinated against the virus.
Please google FIV, it is not a life sentence that must end with
euthanasia, instead these cats can live long happy lives and it
cannot spread to humans. Take the ignorance out of the word aids
and so many of these cats could find lovely caring homes.

is a little bit lost but he is a purring machine. His coat is semi
long hair, he hasn’t got a bad bone in his body and it wasn’t
his fault he was taken as a free kitten and then got abandoned as
soon as he became inconvenient. When you move it is very easy to
put the cat in the carrier and take the cat with you. No rocket
science there. Unfortunately Björn’s and almost every
other cat I have here have faced the same fate.
What kind of lesson are these people teaching their kids?
Bjorn is proundly sponosred by Graham, Carlee, cats Daisy and Willamina.
Tara, well, she is unhappy and that with reason. She was thoughtlessly
and cruelly abandoned to the pound to be destroyed by strangers.
Her owner didn’t even have the guts to be with her when she
was to be put to death. Tara is named after a beautiful woman I
know and this will help her into a brighter future and a home that
will put her previous one to great shame. Tara should be an only
cat at least to begin with, she needs to get some order in her life
and then add a kitten or more.

Tula and Ned.
a few years old and the most wonderful cat, really no need to adopt
him as I will miss out on him then. We are in love, he is my shadow
whenever I am in his enclosure. But Ronnie was very sick a year
or so ago. He was tested for everything, his mouth was raw and in
the end we put it down to calici virus which will test negative
once it is chronic. I ended up having all his teeth removed, it
hasn’t affected his smile at all but should he live with other
cats these cats must be kept vaccinated as well as Ronnie himself.
He eats wet food but also inhales dry food. He is like a new cat
and I have a feeling he would be the happiest with an owner all
to himself though he gets on well with other felines.
