Facts about Ginger

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Hiya there, I’m Ginger! I’m a big orange and white tabby gentleman with beautiful amber eyes and a soft pink nose. I came here when my people fell on hard times and could no longer care for me.

I’m a sweet fella, but I would like a proper introduction before we can be best friends. I prefer people to other kitties, and love to be groomed and pet, all while purring your cares away. I keep myself content, and can be a bit of a loner. But that doesn’t mean I’m not excited to meet you! I’m your perfect “mellow fellow”, and you can win me over pretty easily with pets and treats.

I’m a little bit older, but I still have lots of years of love left in me. I prefer to be by myself, but I do get along with other mellow kitties. I would prefer a house without dogs, and I can be in a home with other mellow kitties like myself, but I would prefer a home with no dogs. I do get along well with older children.

They tell me I’m about 12 years old, so you can take me home for $60. My adoption includes important virus testing, neuter, microchip, vaccinations, food and litter starter kit, a month of free insurance and a free vet visit voucher. Drop by and see what a sweet and mellow guy I am!

About Happy Cats Haven

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 1,800 cats and kittens since 2011!

All our funding comes from private individuals and grants. Eighty-four 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 2016. 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.
