About Cat Haven
Cat Haven began in 1999 in response to a community need for comprehensive rescue, foster, and adoption services for cats and kittens in the Baton Rouge community. When we began, we were the first rescue organization to spay and neuter pets before adopting them out to new homes, reflecting the value in responsible pet care, population control, and quality of life for our animal companions. Today, we still remain the only organization that caters exclusively to cats and kittens in Baton Rouge, and we proudly operate as a "no-kill" shelter.
The Cat Haven Adoption Center is located at 11130 N. Harrell's Ferry Rd. and is open Monday-Saturday 12-6 pm and Sunday 12-4 pm. To Learn more about Cat Haven, visit  and follow them on  Facebook Twitter , and  Instagram .
