Smile of the Week

And then there's Maude

Staff/Voice/Website photo w/permission


eet Maude! She's Laid back, gentle and loving. She will rub against you looking for attention. She becomes nervous when picked up and carried around but feels comfortable with petting as long as her feet remain on the ground. Gets along well with other cats.


Editors Note: Maude is a new girl on the block and one of the lucky ones who now has the proper care she needs. What's really sad to see is that most of the cats pictured in the list on Haven's website are the same ones that have been at the shelter for years and we've already featured them here on the Voice. Wouldn't it be nice to give them all special homes?

Foster care

Our foster care is lifesaving help for cats who need time or rehabilitation before they are ready to be adopted. Volunteer foster homes nurture the animals until they are old enough or well enough to be adopted. To volunteer as a foster care giver, please contact us. To help support a foster animal, please consider our Pet Sponsorship Program.

Health care

Before adoption, cats receive health screening, spay/neuter surgery (or arrangements made for surgery), de-fleeing and de-miting, and worming. All animals that are spayed and neutered at the Safe Haven will also be tattooed.

To meet one of the available cats or to inquire about adopting or sponsoring contact the Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven Society, 49843 Chilliwack Central Road, Chilliwack, BC V2P 6H3 by phone at: 604-794-SAFE (7233) or e-mail here or visit their website at:
