We do not have a facility at this time. Currently, we utilize foster homes to care for cats or kittens in the rescue. Our foster homes are located in Adams and York County Pennsylvania, as well as Carroll County Maryland. Please like and follow our social media for updates.
Our cats come to us from a variety of unfortunate circumstances. We accept cats from other rescue organizations and people who do not have space for them. Through our TNR program we acquire friendly strays in need of second chances, and we also accept owner surrenders of healthy cats in need of new families.
We accept payment in the following forms.
*We do not accept personal checks.*
*Fees cover the cost of these services. They may not cover the entire cost, so please consider making an additional donation if you are able. We also help with local trap-neuter and release programs.
Some Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Release cases may require cats to be re-located. Most feral cats are not able to acclimate to being adopted into a home. We can work with farm owners to provide these cats a better environment. Please do not ever relocate a cat on your own. A relocated cat will often die trying to find it's way back home, unless a proper acclimation period is provided.
If you are interested in obtaining Barn Cats, please complete our Barn Cat Adoption Application.
You can complete an Owner Surrender Request form.
Completing this form does not serve as an agreement between yourself and Harlow's Haven Cat Rescue (HHCR). The form serves to provide information about your cat to Harlow's Haven Cat Rescue, to determine if HHCR is able to provide assistance.
Assistance may come in the following forms:
-Courtesy post on HHCR Website and social media.
-Foster to adopt, if a suitable foster home is available.
-Networking with other rescues.
-Provide resources for surrendering your cat.
-Housed at our adoption center (coming soon)
Your honest answers are necessary to ensure the best possible outcome. This will assist us in determining how we may help you.
*Harlow's Haven Cat Rescue is not responsible for the adoptions conducted between private parties via our Courtesy Postings. All private parties involved assume full responsibility for any risks that may cause personal injury to themselves and (if applicable) family members. All private parties involved further release and discharge Harlow's Haven Cat Rescue for any injury, loss or damage arising out of themselves or their family's use of Harlow's Haven Cat Rescue's Courtesy Postings, whether caused by the fault of themselves, their family, or other third parties.
We recommend taking it to a local veterinarian or shelter to be scanned for a microchip. A stray may be someone's pet that has lost it's way home. If there is no microchip or info available, we recommend contacting your local shelter or humane society. When a pet goes missing, many owners will contact the shelter to be on the lookout for them.
As far as treating the injury, we advise to take extra caution when coming in contact with an injured animal. An injury may be the result of a fight or bite with another animal and exposure to Rabies.
Some shelters that offer Trap-Neuter-Release programs may evaluate or treat an injury while the cat is in for spay or neuter surgery. Please contact your local shelter to inquire about their services.
While our mission is to help as many as possible, like many other rescues, we operate with limited funds and space. We are unable to provide medical services or funds for cats not currently in our foster homes.
Every cat that we take in has a 14 day quarantine period in which they are kept in cages. Once we determine that the cat is healthy it will be allowed to live cage free in it's foster home. When we take our cats to events, we do have them in cages for their safety.
Your donation allows us to provide our rescue cats with everything they need while they are in our care, including a roof over their furry little heads.
Yes. No guests under the age of 7 are permitted to have contact with our cats at adoption events. This is for the protection of our cats and your children. All guests under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Guests ages 14-17 must have a waiver signed by an adult to socialize with our cats.
No. All of our cats have been cleared by a veterinarian prior to living among the colony. Diseases spread very easily among cats and we do not want to jeopardize their health.
