Cat Haven rings in the New Year with fundraising success!
February 06, 2018
Thanks to the support of more than 200 donors, Cat Haven exceeded its year-end fundraising goal of $30,000 and raised a total of $35,763. This success will greatly help the non-profit animal rescue organization continue its services to the Baton Rouge community in the New Year.
"It is wonderful to see community members who love animals coming together to help continue our no-kill mission," said Wendy Decker, Executive Director of Cat Haven. "I am both surprised and humbled that we were able to raise this amount of money in just over a month's time," she said. "Cat Haven will do great things this year, thanks to the success of this campaign and the support of our donors!"
Along with the success of this fundraising campaign, Cat Haven is also celebrating record-breaking adoption numbers for 2017. Cat Haven found homes for 1,320 cats and kittens last year, the highest annual number they've ever accomplished. Cat Haven has now saved the lives of more than 11,000 felines in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas.
