Bailey’s Cat Haven – A Heavenly “Hang Out” for Felines
Thanks to many generous donations, and the dedicated work of our volunteers, the Angel Ridge cats have successfully moved into their state-of-the-art new home.
November 5, 2023 was the open house and grand opening of the new Bailey’s Cat Haven, located at 2650 Brownsville Rd. South Park PA. What makes the new Bailey’s so special, you may ask? It is a fun and cozy “almost home” for our adult cats while they wait for their new families to meet them and take them to their “forever home”. Bailey’s meets the needs of cats in all situations.
A quarantine room has been established for very young kittens, who are expected to be there about two weeks for observation, and if necessary, veterinary treatment prior to going into a foster home. Adult cats in need of isolation and veterinary treatment will use the room, too.
Two of the rooms on the 1st floor have large multi-level enclosures complete with enrichment toys inside. Cats can be there by themselves or paired with a “buddy” cat. You will not find small cages here. There are multiple openings to the enclosure which can be accessed by socializing volunteers to interact more closely with the cats that are scared and untrusting.
The transition room houses cats in individual large enclosures and they have access to cat trees or cubby spaces. The cats in this room need individual attention and so are worked with out of their enclosures. There is room in this space to focus on behavioral and trust issues. The cats in the transition room can begin to roam together when they are comfortable in doing so.
The free roaming room allows the resident cats to stay in their open cages or to explore the room and engage with other cats. There are many fun things to do and climbing opportunities throughout the room. They can interact freely with the volunteers and one another.
The meet and greet room, sponsored by the estate of Ed Fitzgerald, allows adopters and their selected cats to get to know one another in a comfortable setting. Visitors may also make this room the first stop on their journey through the building. One lucky cat is selected to be the official greeter and resides in the meet and greet room.
Visiting hours are 12 to 3:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Appointments are available during the week. Volunteers are always needed. Contact Cat Care Coordinator, Barb Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
