Cat Haven is Western Australia’s premier cat welfare organisation and the state’s only open admission shelter. Every year, Cat Haven takes in between up to 8,000 animals, finding new homes for thousands. Cat Haven runs one of WA’s most comprehensive foster care programs as well as a vet clinic that is also accessible to the public. Cat Haven provides highly discounted sterilisation and microchipping services.

Cat Haven is a not-for-profit charity that receives very little government funding. As such, it is entirely reliant on the generosity of the public and the business community for donations.
