Cat Sanctuary

Cat lying down.

Corine-Cat-Refuge-013-resizedOn the edge of the small town of Corinne, Utah, next to a small pond, sits a sanctuary for a variety of cats. Some are waiting for adoption, some for foster care, some are recuperating and for a few this will be a permanent home. Many dedicated volunteers along with the onsite caretaker, provide a safe and nurturing environment for a population of felines in need.

The Sage Haven Animal Sanctuary has recently been taken over by the Humane Society of Northern Utah. The Humane Society mission is to provide a “No Kill” haven for animals without forever homes. The former director was no longer able to run the cat sanctuary and the Humane Society felt this was an opportunity to provide assistance in renovations along with the reducing the overloaded rescues and shelters in Northern Utah.

An adoption center in nearby Farr west will have fundraising and adoption events where cat lovers can visit with potential new family members. When wandering through the building and yards of the cat sanctuary, one feels the love from all those housed there. The volunteers and current director are dedicated individuals providing a safe environment for these loving, homeless felines.
