Cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Being on a ranch is one of the things that make FieldHaven unique. Cats and kittens get used to a lot of activity including dogs and kids – lot of kids. FieldHaven has a very popular youth volunteer program where parents are encouraged to volunteer with their children. They also provide education programs for schools and youth organizations.
FieldHaven volunteers work hard to ensure each cat or kitten is adopted into the most appropriate home. They take the phrase “forever home” seriously by providing counseling to the new “parents” at the time of adoption as well as being available post-adoption to answer any questions and provide advice on helping everyone, including existing 4-legged family members, make a smooth transition in the new home.
Besides the youth volunteer and education program, FieldHaven has a senior adoption program called Mature Cats for Mature People where the adoption fee is waived for seniors adopting senior cats.
In spite of being such a young organization, FieldHaven has become well-known in the Lincoln area and has been able to help residents and downtown businesses work to control a number of feral colonies by TNRing, including a large colony at the Gladding McBean clay factory. They have worked to involve the community in the solution by assisting residents with trapping and fixing stray or feral colonies.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
