2018 Appeal Letter:

Dear Supporters,

The current priority of A Feral Haven’s mission is to partner with community caregivers, animal welfare groups, governmental agencies, and the citizens of Ottawa County, MI and beyond to support the health and welfare of community/feral cats by providing spay/neuter, vaccinations, food, and winter shelter to cats in their home neighborhoods. A Feral Haven also provides suggestions to caregivers with cats that are no longer safe in their current outdoor home. In some circumstances, we place a courtesy post on our Facebook page.

With the support of caring people like you, collaborating organizations, businesses, and grant foundations, we provided support to over 450 community cats in Ottawa County, MI and surrounding areas since A Feral Haven was established. We are awed by the dedicated individuals in our community who care for these unowned cats and grateful to have the opportunity to help.

Our primary focus is to provide vouchers for the spay/neuter and vaccination of needy community cats to caregivers in a timely fashion. We have prevented the first iteration birth of nearly 1000 kittens since 2015 through our voucher program. Every community cat spayed or neutered makes a difference.

Food for cats is also a priority and we share any donated food with partnering caregivers who request assistance. If you have cat food to donate, we will gratefully accept it.

Your financial support is vital to ensuring that in 2019 we can respond promptly to all requests for trap, voucher, and food assistance. A Feral Haven is a 501c3 registered non-profit and your donation may be tax-deductible. You may write us a check, utilize banking bill pay, or use Paypal.

With appreciation for you considering our request,

Carleen Bauer
