One Cat Out of a Million


At FieldHaven Feline Center, we aspire to keep cats and kittens out of shelters. We subscribe to the five key initiatives of the Million Cat Challenge to avoid, whenever possible, intaking cats to shelter at FieldHaven.

Alternatives to Intake

Provide positive alternatives to keep cats in the home or community when admission to a shelter is not the best choice.

Managed Admissions

Schedule intake of cats to match the shelter’s ability to assure humane care and safe movement through the shelter system to an appropriate outcome for every cat.

Capacity for Care

Match the number of cats cared for at any one time with the capacity required to support the Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare for all cats in the shelter.

Removing Barriers to Adoption

Expand the pool of adopters by removing barriers to adoption such as cost, process, or location.

Return to Field

Sterilize, vaccinate, and return healthy un-owned shelter cats to the location of origin as an alternative to euthanasia.

Should rehoming be the only alternative for your cat, please complete a Cat Information Survey. An Intake Coordinator will contact you to triage your situation.
