Cat Haven

Raised by 4 people in 44 months

Hello, my name is JoAnne. Besides being an author and artist, I am an animal lover.  I am seeking donations too help fund Cat Haven.  This is a non-profit organization to spay and neuter stray cats in my community of Logan, Ohio, and lower the number of unwanted litters.

Many cats needing the Cat Haven fund are feral or abandoned by owners who cannot or will not support them. Once these felines are spayed and neutered, their chances of being adopted are greater. Donating to Cat Haven is one way to assist them.

The full story: As many of us animal lovers realize, there is an over popultion of stray cats within every community.  If we humans dont help control the over-population by spaying and neuturing these homeless creatures, who will?  Thank you for donating.  I dearly appreciate all help.  Please share this campaign link:  I am a generous and caring person, who puts others ahead of myself. Those who have had an opportunity to get to know me will tell you that I am a good hearted person who enjoys helping others. I set up this gofundme because I want to make a huge difference concerning the over-population of stray cats in my small community of 7,146.  My love for animals can help me do big things. The support of my friends and family has been the driving force behind my determination to overcome the over-population of stray cats in my small community.

The funding will help cover the cost of spaying and neutering of dozens, and dozens of feral cats that are starving, being abused by those who do not respect animals, and from the elements of living and trying to survive in the wild. Time is of the essence and I don't want to lose more of these beautiful creatures to starvation, abuse, and neglect.  If you are not in the position to help us financially, please keep us in your prayers and share the link on your social medias. Someone you know may be able to help or maybe it will at least bring awareness to how urgent Cat Haven is. Watching my community be overrun with dozens of unwanted litters each year is heartbreaking me and so many others. This situation comes with an incredible amount of pain, emotionally and mentally but it is often oversimplified. Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated. You may contact me through Facebook with any questions and make sure too “like” my page or follow my Cat Haven campaign that will be constantly updated and witness “the saving of felines in Logan, Ohio”.

Please consider giving $1 or $5 to help support my cause. Even if you normally wouldn't support feline rescue, consider supporting to help teach others who read this notice how much of a difference one person or a group of people can make. I can promise you, this lesson will resonate so deeply with others it will bring people together to help my cause. I really do want to spend my life making unwanted litters cease in Logan, and to make Logan a better place.

Thank you for your support and please share this with your friends.

Hello friends, this week I'm highlighting a quick guide, covering lost and found pets. Losing a pet is certainly a dramatic experience. The bad news is that one-third of pets at some point get lost, but the good news that if you do lose your pet, 90% of the time you will find it. Clearly, the best way to avoid a lost pet is taking steps to prevent it happening in the first place.

3 Ways To Prevent Pet Loss
•Keep up-to-date tags on your pets at all times & microchip your pets

•Train your pet to come when called

•Check your fencing condition every month

3 Ways To Find Your Lost Pet
•Check along routes where the dog is walked
•Post flyers immediately
•Visit all local animal shelters, at least every other day

Another fascinating tid bit from JoAnne Myers. Please donate today and help lower unwanted feral litters.

Update: Did you know that traveling with your pet on an airplane can be one of the most stressful and potentially dangerous ways you can travel with your pet. Here are a few tips for flying with your cat.

1. Crate train you pet. Get them used to being in their travel crate for as many hours as they will be on the plane.

2. Get your pet checked out for flying by your vet before you book your tickets. Some pets have subtle medical conditions that make it very dangerous for them to fly.

3. : If your pet is small enough to fly in cabin, that is MUCH safer than flying your pet as cargo. Be prepared so use a harness.

4. Cargo is the most dangerous way to fly with your pets. Make sure you have very strong crates. Write your phone number with a sharpie on the crate itself. Put nothing chewable inside the crate.

5. Sedate your cat only if your vet approves of it.

Cat bites are serious!. This is one situation where your immediate actions can be the difference between a momentary ouch – and days spent in the hospital with multiple surgeries.

1. Immediately and thoroughly wash the wound with plenty of soap and warm water.

2. It is a good idea to follow the washing with an antiseptic solution, such as iodine or other disinfectant.

3. Apply antibiotic ointment and cover the wound with gauze or a bandage.

4. If the wound is severe, if you notice any signs of infection (pain, reddening, and swelling), or if you have any of the risk factors listed on their page here, seek medical advice at once.

Cat Pilling Tips

If you can’t get a liquid, and your cat won’t or can’t eat the pill in food or a pocket, you’ll have to “pill” your cat. Do not dry pill a cat without a chaser. Always follow a pill by immediately offering your cat a chaser: canned food, broth, or water… and making sure they eat or drink at least one full teaspoon. This will help the pill go all the way down. If they are sick or just won’t eat canned food, or even lap up watered-down chicken baby food, you may have to gently syringe 6cc of water into the corner of their mouths. NEVER DRY PILL a cat or kitten. The pill can get stuck and be fatal!

1.First, coat pill with butter. Check with your vet, but most pills can safely be coated with butter or hidden in a tiny butter ball, which will help them slide all the way down.
2.Second, offer pill like a treat, out of your hand. Every once in a while one of my foster cats surprises me by eating the pill no fuss! If they do, follow with a chaser, and you’re done.
3.Third, make a Kitty Burrito: Use a towel to gently but securely wrap your cat up like a burrito in a towel, with just his head showing. It really helps to have an assistant (I owe my friends so many favors!) to hold the kitty burrito on a table or floor, so you have both hands free to open cat’s mouth, insert pill, and hold your cat’s mouth closed till they swallow. Don’t forget to give the chaser after!

Cat Haven is dedicated to spay and neuter domestic and feral cats in Logan, Ohio, too lower unwanted litters. Our furry friends need your help. Please donate and share this link. Thank you.

I "liked" your site and put it on my Facebook page. I am allergic to cats but love animals and have a number of cat people in my circle of friends. Best of luck to you. I have a GFM site too for a project I am working on involving a book about sled dogs and the women who race them! I'd appreciate if you can share my site too! Good luck with your campaign.
