The Sanctuary at Haafsville is a safe haven for homeless cats and dogs.  

In our first 12 years, we've saved over 12,000 animals and placed them in loving "furever" homes! In 2021, we placed almost 1,200 animals.  We adhere to a No-Kill animal welfare philosophy which means we do not euthanize animals to create space.  We partner with shelters that are overcrowded, we work with 14 Lehigh County and 1 Berks County municipalities to take in stray dogs and cats, rescue dogs and cats from natural disasters, accept dogs and cats from owners who need to relinquish them, and work to place animals into loving homes.

Shelly
Over a year ago, we got a call from the police that a cat had been abandoned in the middle of the sidewalk in a carrier. After checking with neighbors and making sure she didn't have a microchip, we welcomed her into our community.
 
We named her Shelly for Shel Silverstein because her sidewalk ended at the Sanctuary. Shelly, while adorable and affectionate with people, had a strong dislike for other cats. At the shelter, she was very anxious. However, one of our volunteers saw what a great cat Shelly is and offered to foster her. 
 
Shelly has absolutely thrived in her foster home! This is what her foster mom had to say. "She is so content to sit on your lap and snooze away. Her favorite toy is a crinkly tunnel so she can hide and pounce. Unfortunately she doesn't do well around other cats. She desperately wants to be next to her person all day long but gets anxious when other cats come near."
 
Shelly will make an incredible companion in a one cat household. Her foster home does have other cats and is not the right long term fit for her.
 
After being abandoned and anxious, Shelly deserves the very best life! We know that one cat homes can be a challenge to find but we also believe that Shelly's perfect home is out there. If you are looking for a cat to snuggle on your lap, make you laugh with her antics, and complete your family, Shelly is the girl for you!
 
Shelly is about 2 years old, healthy, spayed, vaccinated, negative for FeLV / FIV, litter trained and microchipped.
 
Shelly's sidewalk led to the Sanctuary but her journey certainly hasn't ended. Her next path leads straight to her forever family!
