TRIBUTE OF LIGHTS, 2015
Celebrate the Season with a unique tribute. It’s a purrfect opportunity for you to memorialize or honor the special people and animals in your life with a tribute light, while supporting our life saving animal welfare and community service programs.
We’ll again be lighting a beautiful cedar tree on the Safehaven grounds with bright lights. With a donation of $10 or more, a light will be illuminated in Honor of or Memory of a loved one.
White lights will be lit in memory of those who are no longer with us, red lights in honor of those who still brighten our lives.
Click here to display the order form, then print and mail to Peninsula Friends of Animals. The gift can be to yourself or to a friend or relative. As you pass by Safehaven the lights will be a reminder of the person or pet who holds a place in your heart.
HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
During November and December, Peninsula Friends of Animals is highlighting four very special kitties. The “Home for the Holidays” program features four felines who have been temporarily residing at Safe Haven, PFOA’s cageless, no-kill animal shelter and adoption center. These kitties are the longest term residents of Safe Haven – all of them have been with us for almost two years. We would love to see all of them happily settled in their own forever homes in time for the holidays!
Be sure to check our HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS FEATURED PET on the right side of each web page. One of these special kitties will be featured each week.
CAT FOOD DONATIONS STILL NEEDED
A big thank you goes out to all who responded to our request for cat food donations for our emergency food bank. I would also like to assure those of you who would like to contribute but haven’t had a chance to yet that we are still in need of cat food donations.
Peninsula Friends of Animals’ emergency food bank is in serious need of cat food donations. The food bank provides food for low income cat owners, serves as a reservoir for Safe Haven in the event of an emergency, and provides food to feed local feral populations. We have only a fraction of our normal cat food at this time of year, and we are still receiving inquiries from the community nearly every day. With our current supply it will not be long before we are in a desperate position again. Won’t you give your cat karma a major boost and make a donation of cat food to Safe Haven today?
For those of you who wish to help out our pet food bank, Airport Garden is conducting a food drive for PFOA. Starting December 1st, when you buy a bag of cat food, mention that you are helping the cats at PFOA and they will donate a matching bag of cat food to us.
Once again, thank you to all who have donated for your generosity, and thank you to Airport Garden Center for your kind and generous offer. Each and every one of you is fantastic!
PAWS UP TO KOENIG SUBARU
A heartfelt thank you to our generous supporter, Koenig Subaru, for donating half the adoption fees for our featured cats during their October adoption campaign. It was a great success for us. Hunter, Jack and Mooney were all adopted, thanks to the extra publicity provided by Koenig.
A MESSAGE FOR HOPE
In the early morning hours of Thursday, November 19, our Hope crossed the Rainbow Bridge to reunite with her Best Friend Forever, Maggie. Hope was with us for what seems like such a short time, and yet, many of us have difficulty remembering when she wasn’t here.
Hope’s 11 1/2 years were not always easy. Injuries sustained as a small kitten left her near death, and without the use of her hind legs. When she was a little older, she tried to use a cart that had been made for her, but she didn’t like it. Eventually she just relied on her ability to drag her back legs anywhere she wished to go.
When Hope was two years old, she met her Mama Linda, who cared for her and loved her for the rest of her life. Mama Linda’s golden retriever, Maggie, was also a paraplegic, and Maggie and Hope were inseparable for the rest of their lives. Maggie took the journey across the Bridge six months, to the day, before Hope. We like to think Maggie wanted to make sure everything was perfect for Hope.
We will all miss Hope, but we are thankful for the 11 1/2 years of her life with us. We will remember her for her strength, loyalty, love of life, and most of all, hope.
THANK YOU TO BEST FRIEND NUTRITION

Hope Williams, owner of Best Friend Nutrition, donated $500 from the proceeds from their silent auction held during their 12th birthday celebration week. A big thank you to Hope for all the good work in our community promoting the health and well being of our companion animals. And the kitties at PFOA send their thanks, as well!
SMUGGLER’S LANDING, 2015
The dinner at Smuggler’s Landing in Port Angeles was, once again, very successful. A good time was had by all, and the PFOA kitties benefitted! Thanks to all of you who came to the dinner, and a big thanks to the Smuggler’s Landing restaurant for hosting the event and contributing 50% of the dinner proceeds to our rescues. We appreciate your support!

JOY IN MUDVILLE
A good time was had by all at the Sequim Prairie Grange event, Joy in Mudville. There was great music, dancing, and lots of refreshments provided by PFOA volunteer bakers. Click on the photo below to see more photos taken at the event.
LAVENDER FESTIVAL, 2015
Lavender Festival was, again, a great success, raising a total of $6,439.42 for the PFOA rescue animals. Our talented PFOA volunteer, Carol Gearey, made the beautiful table runner shown in the above photo for our annual raffle. Karlette Winters was the lucky winner this year. As always, our PFOA four-pawed residents thank all of you who bought raffle tickets, purchased our world-famous potholders, or just stopped by to chat.
WE HAVE T-SHIRTS!
We have a number of t-shirts featuring our own Staff Supervisor and Facebook Administrator, Tippy, and more “Barky t-shirts” that have been very popular over the last two years! Click your favorite’s name (below) to display the order form:

Peninsula Friends of Animal’s shelter and headquarters, Safe Haven, is located between Sequim and Port Angeles on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. We list cats, kittens and a few dogs available for adoption on a regular basis. The shelter has many wonderful cats, all with their own personalities. And right now there are some especially loving, friendly, purring pets who would love nothing more than to be a part of someone’s family.
Animals at Safe Haven enjoy life in big, airy playrooms with large outdoor patio enclosures, but they all yearn for a home of their own where they can curl up in a lap and snuggle with a loving human.
Please check back often to see new animals as they become available. Just click on the “Adoptable Cats” or “Adoptable Kittens” menu item under the “ADOPTIONS” heading.
We run a monthly spay/neuter clinic for the pets of low-income community residents. Learn much more by exploring our website and signing up for monthly Pet Tidings newsletters and volunteer activities. And if you have more questions, or would like to contribute in some way, please feel free to call Safe Haven at 360-452-0414 and leave us a message.
