Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question about our new shelter, our community or how we run things? Our Frequently Asked Questions should help fill you in.
How many cats can FieldHaven accommodate?
Currently, our capacity for cats and kittens at FieldHaven is 55. This includes approximately 25 cats at the shelter with the rest residing in foster homes. This capacity is based on our current resources of staff, volunteers and finances. Obviously, we get many more requests to take in cats than we can accommodate so we have... numerous programs to help those cats we can't bring into FieldHaven. They include SNAP (spay/neuter assistance program), CAT (community/cat assistance team), Courtesy Listings, temporary short-term fostering for people in transition and a number of other programs and services. FieldHaven is an adoption driven capacity shelter in that we have to adopt out a cat to make space to bring another one in. If you adopt from FieldHaven you actually save two lives - the cat you adopted and the one we bring into FieldHaven to fill that space!
How is FieldHaven Funded?
FieldHaven is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. All of our operating funds for everything we do comes from donors like yourself, fundraisers and some grants. We receive NO funds from the city of Lincoln, the county of Placer or the state of California. Our budget is around $160k per year. Every donation of any amount is so appreciated and we applaud each and every one of you who support FieldHaven - we could not do all this great work with your help.
What is included in our Adoption Fee?
Our Adoption Fee includes a comprehensive medical package including:
All of this would cost $350 or more at full-service veterinarian.
Will FieldHaven adopt to cats to homes that will let them outdoors?
That's a question that doesn't have a simple "Yes/No" answer. The short answer is, Yes, we do adopt to indoor/outdoor homes.
