The fur was flying throughout 2019 at the Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven – but in a good way.

Safe Haven President Lynne Torgalson reports that over 180 cats and kittens were adopted into their “fur-ever” homes during the year and 13 adoptions were still pending at the year’s-end. “This is highest number of adoptions the Safe Haven has recorded since it began operation in 2003. What is especially pleasing is that this number includes not only the adoptions of a number of older cats but also some that had been resident at the Haven for many years.”

Torgalson notes that “Such results would not be possible without the dedicated support of the staff, volunteers, cat and kitten foster parents, people of all ages who held fund-raising events or donated money and supplies, local businesses who generously donated food and supplies, promoted Safe Haven chocolates and calendars and helped to increase the awareness of work the Safe Haven does in the Chilliwack area. Last, but certainly not least, are the veterinary professionals who provide the Safe Haven cats with the highest standard of medical care. To all of these and on behalf of all the cats who, being the independent critters that they are, would say it in words themselves if they could, the Safe Haven extends a sincere, warm and purr-filled thank you.”

“The Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven is dedicated to saving homeless cats, seeking to place them in loving forever homes and cultivating respect and awareness for the rights and needs of animals in the Chilliwack area. 2019 was a banner year and with continued support and awareness, 2020 can be even better.”
