Cat Haven is leading Baton Rouge in becoming a no-kill community for cats and kittens by providing care, shelter, and adoption services, as well as advocating for routine spaying and neutering for population control.

Cat Haven began in 1999 as an all-volunteer grass roots group in response to a community need for comprehensive rescue, foster, and adoption services for cats and kittens. Twenty years later, we have grown to an organization with a staff of 6 employees, 300+ volunteers, and a state-of-the-art adoption center. Through collaborating with Companion Animal Alliance and other animal rescues, we hope to make a difference in the lives of homeless felines. 

Cat Haven is a 501c3 non-profit organization aimed at rescuing felines in our community and finding them forever homes.

Due to Covid-19, we are currently doing adoptions by appointment-only! Please give us a call and we will call to schedule you a time to come in and view our cats and kittens!

Cat of the Week

Precious is our Cat of the Week! This beautiful girl is approx. 5 years old. She is front paws declawed and is vaccine reactive. She had a traumatic experience when she was brought back, so she is very cautious around new people. She warms up quickly and has made great strides!
