When you first step into a cafe in De Pere, it looks like a regular coffee shop, until you see a cat curled on a chair, and one on the counter, and another snuggling with a customer.

The cafe is a non-profit called “Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary” and the animals all have special needs and have been rescued from euthanization lists in Wisconsin.

“A lot of our animals here have physical or psychological disabilities,” said founder Elizabeth Feldhausen. “We rehabilitate them to the best of our ability and we try to find them homes so that they can get a second chance."

If you want to adopt or help socialize the cats, they are open Tuesday through Saturday.
