Safe Haven for Animals is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Rescue
Help us keep our kitties in style by supporting AZSHFA's Spay/Neuter (Snips) and Dental (Smiles) fund! We have 8+ kittens at the shelter who are coming in to adulthood and could use your assistance covering the cost of their surgeries including one kitten who is going through a painful teething which will require his baby teeth removed by extraction. Medical needs, particularly for dental do not stop just at kittens, we also have a new senior cat in disrepair who needs several extractions ($200-250 each).
Kitten season does not stop at the shelter, and many new kittens have recently come under our care.
A responsibility that we take seriously with every animal we rescue is ensuring they are healthy, happy, and safe. For kittens this means a spay/neuter, microchip, rabies shot, and vaccinations at a minimum. This costs about $100-130 per kitty if they have no other medical issues such as being rescued with injuries, fleas, infections, or chronic conditions.
Solomon (below) and Boy-Kitty (too shy for a photo!) will each need between $200-250 for extraction surgery.
Spay/Neuter surgeries vary in cost depending on sex and required medications, typically staying between $45-75 each. Just now we have 10 kittens needing surgery with more coming in the Spring!
Sweet Solomon the kitten - desperately needs baby teeth removed - they are refusing to move out of the way for his adult teeth.
Our kittens (Chopin, Copeland, Franz Litz, Poulenc, Blue, Petey, Faith, and more) all need a little snip!
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and our deeply loved kitties in need of some treatment at this time. It is most imparative for us to help Solomon and Boy Kitty with their extractions as they are in discomfort and pain - just like a human with dental problems! We're forever grateful to the wonderful community of volunteers, donors, sponsors, and cat lovers that continue to help us fulfill the life-time promise we make to each cat we rescue.

Solomon's teeth finally moved out of the way naturally - painful because we couldn't get surgery soon enough but he is pain free for now and we're hopeful his next set of teeth (molars and more) grow in more gently. We still have not been able to schedule our older gentleman Little Man and are so thankful for the money raised so far so that we can soon!
Bless you all!
