We hope you’ll come to St. David’s Episcopal Church, Rt. 1, Kennebunk, this Saturday (March 8) between 10am-3pm.
You’ll meet some of Safe Haven’s adorable adoptables, like Moxie here.
We appreciate St. David’s Carolyn Gowdy and her great love for animals to engage her congregation and hosting this event to help homeless kitties find great homes.
Carolyn is also the enthusiastic soul who keeps St. David’s thrift shop, The Budget Box, an active satellite location for Safe Haven’s kitties. Thanks to Carolyn’s diligence and passion, many kitties have found happy homes. Thank you, Carolyn!
Please come and show your support this Saturday.
Tuesday, Jan 7 and Tuesday, Jan 14, please show your support for Safe Haven by attending a community supper at Robert’s Maine Grill, Rt.1, Kittery. Between 4pm and 8:30pm, enjoy a three-course menu for just $14, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Safe Haven.
Roberts specializes in Maine comfort food with an updated twist. FMI call Deb McCluskey at 439-0300 or visit www.robertsmainegrill.com.
Mark your calendar for Jan 7 and Jan 14 — thanks!
Mittens for Kittens has done it again.
Kitties Bella and Barney and their hard-working mom (who refuses to let us publicly credit her) knitted and sold wool and fleece mittens and sold them at craft fairs around Maine and New England — then donated the proceeds to Safe Haven!
A donation of $2500 was received — and we thank Bella, Barney and their mom for all their hard work and generosity, and to all the customers who purchased these unbelievably warm and comfy mittens.
Each pair included a thank you note and Safe Haven’s website address.
Want to help? Donate wool sweaters and fleece jackets you no longer need or want to Safe Haven, and we’ll make sure they get to Bella and Barney. They’ll magically turn them into luxurious mittens (and money to pay for vet bills and kitty supplies).
Thanks, Bella and Barney!
… and they include YOU!
At Christmas time we look around at the blessings that surround us. Safe Haven is still in our little cape, even though it’s been on the market for a year. We’re so thankful to still have a place to care for the animals.
It’s all because of you and your support, both financial and spiritual.
In 2014, our aim is to implement a strong capital campaign to help us be more financially prepared for moving and finding placement for our sanctuary kitties, our adoptable kitties, our rescue work and thrift shop. Eventually this building will sell and when it does, we’ll need a new home.
We’re developing a program to enable supporters to make monthly installments toward our next building. Different levels of giving will be marked by tribute bricks, memorial trees and memorial benches. There will be room-naming levels for those who wish to contribute large amounts toward our building fund. If you have land or a building to donate, naming rights are available as well.
We hope you have safe and happy holidays, and a wonderful new year!

Sailor, adopted from Safe Haven 6 months ago, zooms and leaps and plays all day in his new home. So..what could the problem be? His new home now is with a couple who say : “He’s just too much for us. It’s like sharing our home with a young lion cub, he needs a need home, this is a bad match”.
That’s a shame. We try very hard to match people to the right kitty but we aren’t perfect. He was a stray when he arrived and I guess we just didn’t know him well enough when he was adopted. So now we are looking for a new home for dear Sailor. Now we know more about this kitty. We know what he really wants.
He’s lovable. He loves people. He wants to interact with you. He’s smart. He needs stimulation. He isn’t a “sit in the window and just be cute all day kind of kitty”. He’s a kitty that is on a mission, that being to be a wild and crazy kind of guy!!! He’s fun!!!
He wants a BIG home, one without nicknacks and things that can get in his way of play. A home where he can be uninhibited in motion. He wants a home with older kids or teens that can take his romping and leaping. No little toddlers, no older people on walkers, no little kids. He’s big and he’s strong. When he runs, he sometimes can’t stop and when he bangs into you, you’ll know it! :)!! He’s fun. He’s full of life. His current owner said one day he leaped up on her bathrobe and hung from it. That is how playful he is!
So you see, he needs someone with a big house, a big sense of humor and a big heart. If that’s you, give me a call at 207-229-8314. We’ll make the introductions!
Every Saturday we’re having an Adoption Open House at our Adoption Center.Come and meet and play with our adoptables. They’ll love it — and your heart will be warmed on these cold winter days.
Interested in seeing our kitties at other times? Call 646-1611 or 229-8314 to arrange a time.
We can even jumpstart your adoption process by completing an adoption application over the phone.
Come and join us indoors!
We’ll be next door to the Wells IGA in the Wells Corner Plaza, on Rt. 1 just south of Rt. 109, next to the Cumberland Farms.
See you there!
