We had such an amazing weekend with Tabitha from Chirrups and Chatter! We were overjoyed with the outpouring of interest from the community in learning more about how to read feline body language, appropriate feline handling, and effective feline enrichment! We are committed to bringing best-practice information to the community to better the lives of all cats and kittens! 😻

The best #adoptionupdate ever: "On September 18, 2013 we visited Happy Cats Haven in hopes of getting my 12 year old son a black cat. Once we met “Bernie & Clyde” we realized he’d be getting 2 cats that day and not just one, as they were bonded brothers. I want you to know that 8 years later, my almost 21 year old son and “Lambo & Bugatti” are now living their best lives at Oklahoma State University!!
These bookend tuxedos have not spent one day, or even an hour actually, apart from each other, and I’m so grateful for that! Because they are now his ESAs and, thanks to a medical exemption, the three of them did not live in the dorms and have had a townhouse to themselves for now 3 years.
These cats remain my son’s entire world! Our family have since moved from Colorado Springs to Florida and are 20 hours away from OSU. Without his cats to come home to, my son would not have had the success at college that he has. I remain forever grateful for what you all do there everyday. You are not only changing the lives of these rescues but changing the lives of those that love them. Thank you for your part in bringing such immeasurable joy and love to my son’s life!! Please know that Bugatti and Lambo are so very loved!!

We are just so humbled and touched when stories like this come in! We could not continue our mission without a wonderful community surrounding us and lifting us. Thank you so much! 💕🤩

Microchips work! Huge headbonks to the Good Samaritans who helped us take care of a lost tortie kitten yesterday. Nick called first to say an injured kitten was in downtown Manitou but people were scaring her away. Next thing we knew, Mason and Jordan from TX walked in holding her in their arms after having almost stepped on her down on the creek.

Her eye was bleeding and clearly injured. We found a microchip, and Adoptions Manager Andrea got her stable and eating while we waited to see if anyone would respond.

It turns out she had been adopted from Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region in August, so we were able to get her there before they closed. Last we heard, she was on her way to the ER for treatment.

Purrs to everyone who helped this little one get in to safety, instead of doing nothing---or worse.

Big headbonks to TNR Coordinator Annamarie Stark and her team at Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region for organizing and hosting their annual Spay & Neuter Day this week! Dr. Sue Gravlin and her amazing veterinary team got 49 community cats fixed in a single day, preventing the suffering and deaths of thousands more in the months to come.

Shout out to our very own Barb Jones and her TNRCares Team for their hard work getting cats in to help solve our region's overpopulation problem. Without them working hand-in-hand with HSPPR’s essential TNR program, homelessness in cats will only increase as the population does.

Welcome to Happy Cats!

Happy Cats Haven began with a dream in 2011. At a time when only 1 out of 3 cats made it out of shelters alive, we dreamed of...

A kind and gentle Haven for homeless cats. A place of comfort to recover from the trauma of abandonment. A place with space for cats to be cats. A place where every cat is a cherished companion, not a disposable whim.

Seven years later, our dream has saved thousands of Happy Cats.

We guarantee safe haven for all our cats. Every adoption saves two: the Happy Cat going home and the lucky cat who gets to come in our doors.

I had a chance to pet-sit my son's Happy Cats Haven cat, Radar (from the M*A*S*H group last year); he is a great, and happy, cat!
Sage and Jasper. Adopted from Happy Cats Haven last month. The sweetest cats. Thank you Happy Cats!
September 18, 2013 we visited Happy Cats Haven in hopes of getting my 12 year old son a black cat. Once we met “Bernie & Clyde” we realized he’d be getting 2 cats that day and not just one, as they were bonded brothers. I want you to know that 8 years later, my almost 21 year old son and “Lambo & Bugatti” are now living their best lives at Oklahoma State University!!

#1 reason to adopt cats from Happy Cats Haven!! 😁
🤣😂🤣😂🤣
One of the best places to volunteer any of your spare time, fill your soul, and find a purrfect companion! Proud to be a part of Happy Cats Haven!
Maus and Tiger are enjoying their forever home. Thanks for taking them in until we could adopt them.
I want to thank you all for the amazing time today for abi! She loved it and we are all looking forward to volunteering very soon!
Thank you for lots of years with this fellow, dear Bear. This is the picture of him you posted on the website. We drove all the way up from Beulah to get him. One of the best decisions we ever made.
Moredecai turned 1 this week. 🎂 He's just as chill and loving as ever. And he's a lofty 13lbs! He got his first hair cut but it's growing back in fast. He'll be a giant floof again soon.
Hi Happy Cats friends, so here's the deal. I have a diabetic/pancreatitis kitty and we struggle consistently with what he wants to eat. This situation has led to me having a surplus of incredibly pricey, high quality food that he wants no part of 😹😹 That being said I would love to donate it to some in need, shelter, community cats....whatever. I have several canned foods (Tiki Cat, Daves, Earthborn) and some dry varieties. If anyone would like it please message me. Thank you
