The fur was flying throughout 2019 at the Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven – but in a good way.
More than 180 cats and kittens were adopted out 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,” said Lynne Torgalson president of the Safe Haven. “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.”
Such results would not be possible without the dedicated support of the staff, volunteers, veterinarians, cat and kitten foster parents, and businesses and people who’ve donated money and supplies to Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven, Torgalson added.
“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. 2019 was a banner year and with continued support and awareness, 2020 can be even better.”
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.
