CLOPON'S SAFE HAVEN RESCUE
HOW IT ALL STARTED
A Bit of Background
Clopon was a kitten left on the side of the road with her brothers and sisters. They were all feline leukemia positive. Their survival rate would have been low if they were to become community cats, but if rescued the survival rate is much higher. A sweet soul picked up these kittens and then I adopted one of them, a sweet but super shy little girl, who would be later named Clopon.Clopon had such a loving soul. Shortly, after adopting Clopon I started rescuing cats. Clopon, being infected with feline leukemia, was unable to eat, drink and play with the rescue cats. That didn’t stop her from wanting to care for new kittens that I brought in, she would stay outside of the area where the kittens would be and try to take care and play with them. A kitten would cry and Clopon would get as close as she could be with them.Sadly, I lost Clopon at the age of 4 1/2. This is a normal life span for an indoor cat with feline leukemia. This was a extremely hard lost for me to handle. I knew somehow I had to keep her memory alive. I purchased my first home at the end of 2015 and there was a shed on the property that looked like a mini house. I knew that as a perfect spot for my rescue. Lots of people laughed when I told them my intentions, but I knew my dream would be realized. March of 2016 I started Clopon’s Safe Haven Rescue. Although, I am a small rescue of only 5 cats, my plans are to be able to grow in the years to come.
WHAT WE DO
Here at Clopon's Safe Haven Rescue, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all, being a voice for the voiceless. We take in cats in need. They are vetted, fixed and then adopted out.
TAKE IN CATS IN NEED
Reduce the load on our bigger rescues
WE HAVE OUR CATS VETTED & FIXED
Cats will be fixed and up to date on shots before being adopted out.
Animals Make Us Better
It is very important to get bloodwork done as soon as possible when a new cat comes in to the rescue, to see if they carry feline leukemia or feline aids as these can be spread to other cats in the rescue.
Every cat is spayed or neutered before being adopted. This is the only way to prevent overpopulation of cats.
When a new cat comes into the rescue, they have to go in for an initial check up. Veterinarian offices charge different prices depending on where we go but this is the average price. Any vaccines, bloodwork or medication is always extra.
