Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Welcome to Happy Cats Haven! We are a non-profit rescue and adoption center for homeless cats and kittens in the Pikes Peak Region of Colorado Springs. We are a Feline Friendly Shelter and guarantee safe haven for all cats we take in.

We believe that cats are valuable, lovable and trainable, not disposable. Feline Friendly means we treat our cats as individuals–with respect, compassion and positive reinforcement–to make their stay as stress-free as possible until they are adopted. We give both our cats and our adopters the gift of time, so everyone can relax and show their true personalities. Each adoption matches our deep understanding of our cats with their new families, handcrafted for a feline lifetime.

About Our Shelter:

At Happy Cats Haven, we take in homeless Colorado cats and kittens and find them new, forever homes. We give our cats the gift of time: time to recover from the trauma of losing their homes and time to show their true personalities. All cats stay here until they are adopted, unless too ill to survive.

Each adoption is hand-crafted, matching our deep understanding of each cat with the adopters' needs and family members for the perfect match. Adopters also have all the time they need in our comfy colonies to get to know our kitties.

Our ongoing support with classes and online advice continues long past adoption. We have found forever families for over 1,400 cats and kittens since 2011!

All our funding comes from private individuals and grants. Eighty-seven percent of all money we raise goes directly to making sure every cat and kitten is healthy, happy and adoptable. For every full-time equivalent staff member, we saved over 160 cats and kittens in 2015. This was made possible by all of our dedicated, loving volunteers.

We are a 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is fully tax-deductible. If you would like to help us continue our good work, you can go to our website and click on the Help Us tab. The volunteers and kitties thank you!

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 and "catolescents" between 6 and 12 months are $80, which includes their FIV/FeLV testing, spay/neuter, microchip, all vaccinations, 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 $60. Our kittens are $125 for those under 6 months, 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.
