Many of our Share-A-Pet dogs and cats live out their life on the Animal Haven Farm
and in Kitty City. While they may never have found a home of their own,
they have been loved by staff and very well cared for.
They will truly always be missed.
Mika was known to all as one of the sweetest cats in Kitty City. She was included on the program due to her mild handicap - her former owner had accidentally run over her front paws with the car, crushing them. She developed kidney problems, and not responsding to treatment efforts, was humanely euthanized. Mika is missed by all. January 2007
Hook was a loving and lovable tortoiseshell girl who became a Kitty City resident after several efforts at adoption failed. Once loved in a home, she was no longer wanted when the owner's newborn twins came home. Hook enjoyed many happy years with us and her sponsors until she recently went into kidney failure at the age of 16 years. She'll always be remembered. March 2007
Louise came to us in 1995 with her best buddy, Thelma. The starving pair was trying to eke out a meager life in Weequahic Park in Newark. Louise was pregnant, but no one seemed to care, least of all whoever had dumped them there. We rescued the two and after no one seemed interested in adopting the girls together, we brought them to the Animal Haven Farm where they were devoted friends for 12 years. Most recently, Louise was being treated for kidney disease, but when she began to fail the kindest thing was to help her leave peacefully, leaving her devoted friend, Thelma, and her caretaker behind. Louise will truly be missed. April 2007.
Smoky Jill had been saved from a house fire over 20 years ago and she waited, but her master or mistress never came to claim her. So she was added to the Share-A-Pet program where she waited for a home. Although Jill was never adopted, she never lacked for affection. She was very sweet and a real people kitty. She loved to be held, petted and brushed and she craved attention. Jill was dearly loved by staff and will truly be missed. November 2007
Ralph came to Kitty City in January 2003. He was 12 years old then, and no longer wanted at his home which was at the printer who does much work for AHS. New management came in and felt Ralph wasn't helping the professional image they wanted to convey. Staff reached out to us and of course, we took Ralph in and placed him on Share-A-Pet. Here he remained, enjoying Kitty City. Our vet was treating him for a tumor on his liver, but Ralph was not improving. The kindest thing for Ralph was, sadly, to put the old guy to sleep at 17. Lots of people who knew Ralph will miss him. - April 2008
