Daughter is not old enough to volunteer on her own, so she and I are volunteering together.
This is Happy Cats Haven.
Happy Cats Haven is a no-kill shelter where the cats live in colonies while they are waiting for homes.
|VERY excited to visit! Daughter brought paper to take notes and some cat food she bought with the |
'giving' portion of her allowance. (She used coupons, too - yay!)
We will be going once a month to help out. I'm working on the volunteer application this week. We can help by folding laundry, cleaning, washing feed dishes, litter duty and playing with kitties!!
Can I say something here? These photos are from our first visit to Happy Cats Haven. The very first thing I noticed was the smell. The air smells like - AIR. Not cat, not disinfectant, not litter...just fresh, clean air. I was impressed by how kind everyone was, how busy people were, and how clean it was. The cats were calm and, well, happy. This shelter is well named, I must say. My little kitten was pretty happy too.
They even have a small shop where you can purchase cat food and supplies, and they offer community events! Look at this!
You can visit the Happy Cats Haven website to learn more or make a donation - just click on the name! Who knows, if you live near me, you may just find your new best friend!

We volunteer at church sometimes too, helping out with this and that. I also have a big (for me) project that I'll be sharing with you soon. Do you volunteer? I'd love to hear what opportunities you've found in your world.
