Paws a while and look as these numbers...
Eleven years ago over 12,140 cats and kittens were surrendered to Cat Haven. In the last few years the amount of surrendered cats and kittens has drastically reduced to between 6500 and 8500 per year, which is very good news.
Why? Because it means that something's working and we'd like to think we played a part in helping to educate the public on the importance of early age desexing of all kittens before they reach sexual maturity.
We're working on improving the story for the next year. See Reducing the Euthanasia Rate.
