HAVA’s Mission

HAVA is a no-kill cat shelter serving north Pacific County, whether homeless, abandoned, or abused. We work to find a permanent, caring home for those animals, and work to provide resources and education to our community to support all local animal life.

Make a Difference Today


We care for hundreds of animals annually, but we couldn’t do it without our incredible community of volunteers! From animal care and enrichment to administrative support, assisting with adoptions or lending a hand at the Thrift Store, our volunteers are the reason HAVA is able to help the pets and people of our community.

If you’re interested in joining our volunteer team and making a difference in the lives of the animals, come be part of our team!
