Adoptable Pets in New Jersey
Safe Haven is a No Kill, Non Profit cat rescue located in Manahawkin New Jersey. We are non profit 501(c)3, No Kill and a registered state charity.

We are an all volunteer organization that has been working in Manahawkin and the surrounding areas for the last 5 years. We work hard to focus locally and concentrate on helping the cats in our area directly so they don't end up being euthanized...or worse.

Do you need to find a loving home for your pet?

No-kill shelters do wonderful work, but as a result, are often inundated with pet surrenders. In the unfortunate scenario that you have to find a new home for your pet, please read through the rehoming solution and articles on this page before contacting the shelter.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

My neighbor was admitted to a nursing home and prospects for her return is not possible. She has been feeding an 8 yr. old cat Princess since she was a kitten. She is neutered and had preliminary shots. My neighbors children have given her to me with the hopes I can find a haven where she can be released but fed daily. I have four feral cats in my home since kittenhood. I am only allowed to have 2 pets. Please help me to find a place for Princess. She is long haired and a beauty. She is now in my unheated garage and needs a new home. Please let me know what you can do to help me.

My dad has 2 cats one is a neutered and declawed male orange tabby long hair 16 years old, the other is a female spayed all black long hair 14 years old. They need to be re-homed as my dad is very ill with cancer and cannot provide the care these cats need. We have tried to find homes for them but to no avail. He is heartbroken that he has to give them up but knows he cannot care for them any longer. Please advise if you can help us!

I am moving away in 2 weeks I have 2 cats (that can be separated) in which I need a home for. Boy is 9 and girl is 5. I cannot afford to take them with me as I will not have employment right away and the apartment complex is asking for $800 both pet initial fee and $80 additional pet rent a month and I may not be home most of time. Additionally husband is feeling very stressed with the cats as well lately. Looking for a home for them. Desperate. Please email me. Thank you.

I have 10 rescue cats that have been in my care for many years. I am looking for temporary fostering 2-3 months at most. the house i live in is being sold and i will be vacating soon. I am also in the middle of a divorce and am waiting for a small settlement of money and will be looking to purchase a small home as soon as i receive my money. I would like to bring them all home with me at that time. there are 2 bonded pairs in this group of cats. If anyone can foster one or two cats, it would be of great help for us. If you can help, please call JoAnne Smith at 732-644-0224

We rescued a small cat that came into our yard about 3 weeks ago. She was having seizures when my husband brought her into the house. I took her to the vet the next morning and had blood work done and they said she had parathyroid disease. So I have been putting her on medication. Unfortunately I cannot keep her because I have two cats of my own. She went back to the vet this week to have more blood work done to check and see if your thyroid medication is working. The vet now thinks she has possible kidney disease. She's a beautiful little cats very affectionate purring all the time. But I'm afraid it might be almost impossible to find her a home. Thought I would reach out to you for some suggestions

There is a beautiful black stray cat that has been hanging around my home in Whiting, NJ. The co-op just said that if we feed any animals we will be given a $1,000 fine. Please, help me with this cat. I have a cat of my own and we are allowed only one cat in the home accorind to co-op rules. You immediate response will be greatly appreciated. Please hurry because the winter will be approaching shortly. Thank you very much!
