Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Happy Cats Haven is a non-profit, limited admission rescue and adoption center for homeless cats and kittens in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We adopt out within a 4-hour drive of the shelter.

About Our Shelter:

Because we know and love each and every cat and kitten here, we can help you make the best possible choice when it comes to finding a cat. Our home-like setting not only puts the cats at ease, but it provides a pleasant, relaxing environment for you to choose your next best cat ever. A good match means a wonderful forever home so your kitten or cat never has to see the inside of a shelter again. We also provide lifelong behavior care and referrals to keep our cats and kittens at hom.

We make every effort to keep up with current feline research and best practices in order to keep our standards high and our cats and kittens healthy and happy.

What makes HCH different from other shelters?

A purr is more subtle than a wagging tail. Cats sometimes need a little help to bring out their best sides, especially with the trauma of losing their homes. We focus on the special needs of cats in shelters, creating a cage-free feline-friendly space that best promotes each cat’s individual personality. This also makes us more human friendly too, giving you a comfortable environment to make your best match possible.

Why open another cat shelter?

Around 9 out of 10 dogs in shelters find a home. For cats, it’s only 1 out of 3. We’d like to put a dent in those horrific statistics by showing people what great companions cats can be. We also spay and neuter each cat to help reduce the kitten explosion that leads to nearly 5,000 cat and kitten euthanasias a year in the Pikes Peak region alone.

Our Adoption Process:

We have a downloadable Adoption Application on our website. It's helpful if potential adopters fill that out before visiting. Our adult cats are $95, which includes their FIV/FeLV testing, spay/neuter, microchip, vaccination (except rabies), a month of free insurance, food & litter starter kit and a free vet visit voucher. Seniors and other special needs cats include the same signing bonus and are $80. Our kittens are $125 for those over 6 months and $140 for those under, including the same package. Other adoption specials can be found on our website or Facebook page.

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.
