We regret to inform the public that Cat Haven’s Facebook account has fallen victim to hacking as of 8/12/23. We are taking immediate action to address this issue and are working alongside Facebook to regain control of our account.


The malicious party behind this breach has been posting fake listings of puppies for sale, leading to confusion and concern among our supporters and followers. We want to assure everyone that this incident solely pertains to our Facebook account and does not extend to any data breach or compromise of personal information. Rest assured, no sensitive information has been accessed or stolen.


Cat Haven will NEVER:

-Ask for payment with an application

-Ask for payments through apps such as Zelle, Venmo, or Cashapp

-Ask for a deposit to “hold an animal”

-Refuse to answer questions

-Advertise "purebred" cats with "papers"

-Push our adopters, or create a "sense of urgency"

-Have dogs, or anything for adoption other than cats!

Our potential adopters can always call us or visit us in person at our shelter!


To avoid any potential risks, refrain from clicking on any posted links or engaging in conversations with the hacker via Facebook Messenger.



We greatly appreciate the support of our loyal followers during this challenging time. If you come across any suspicious posts or listings on our Facebook page, please take a moment to report them directly to Facebook. By collectively reporting these fraudulent activities, we increase the likelihood of swift action being taken by Facebook's security team. If you have liked or shared the posts, please remove your like and delete the shared post. Together, we can help put an end to this situation and restore the integrity of our shelter's online presence.


We are committed to maintaining transparency throughout this process and will provide updates as we work to regain control of our Facebook account. Your understanding and cooperation are invaluable to us as we address this unfortunate incident. For further updates and accurate information, please refer to our official website at, our official Instagram at @cathavenbr, or contact us directly at 225-636-2680. Thank you for your ongoing support.
