Ingrid's Haven is a non-profit cat shelter in Victoria, an hour's drive from Melbourne. Come and meet the many rescue cats and kittens available for adoption - all from death row at the pound, rescued and cared for by Ingrid until forever homes can be found.
Ingrid does not accept surrenders from individuals, (see the About page).
Ingrid's Haven is a no-kill shelter.
