My story

A little about Oven from her foster mom:

Oven is one of the sweetest cats I've ever had the pleasure of fostering (and I've been at it for years!) She came to our home two days before giving birth, and stayed with us for about two months. She was so tender and sweet, both to her little ones and to us. She's shy but an independent spirit. Being the independent type, she'd do great as the only pet. She's kind of a queen that way, but a sweet one. (She looks pretty regal too!) She loves to chat about anything, and most of the time she purrs when she talks. She's not one to snuggle or demand lap time but she's always up for pets from her humans. She'll even let you pet her tummy!!! Oh, and don't forget the Temptations treats. They're her fave!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Steps to Adoption Visit our shelter and see if any animals interest you. Fill out our Adoption Form. Applications for adoption are also available at the shelter in paper form. Once the application is filled out, we can take the animal out for you and you can interact for a while. We stop showing animals 30 minutes prior to close (so we can give animals medication before we leave.) If you have previously filled out an application and it has been more than 6 months, we will ask you to fill out another. It usually takes about 12-24 hours to process the application. Before we can adopt out the animal, family that will be around it on a daily basis must come and interact too. All of your current pets must interact with the new pet. If you do not hear from us within 24 hours, please call to verify that we received your application. If you are declined for any reason, we will tell you why. If you have not heard from us within 5 business days, please feel free to call. If you have received notice of your approval for adoption, you will be asked to come in, pay your adoption donation and take home your pet. If, for any reason, this adoption does not work out, you sign a contract that you will bring the animal back to us. Requirements for Adoption If you rent, we require your landlord's phone number. We will contact him or her regarding your adoption. If you are adopting a dog, it must not be left alone for more than 8 hours at a time. Puppies are allowed to be left 4-6 hours depending on their age. You must be serious about keeping the animal as a lifetime companion. It is very stressful for them to go through multiple homes and can cause behavioral and mistrust issues. If you are interested in declawing a cat, we ask that you adopt a cat that is already declawed. You are not to have any animal adopted from Safe Harbor declawed. It is inhumane to declaw a cat. It can cause arthritis and behavioral issues.
