Our Story
ECAH stands for Extended Circle Animal Haven, the original name of our rescue group. Extended Circle Animal Haven was founded in 2003 to provide a no-kill rescue group in the Tallahassee area. The extended circle reference is from a quote of Dr. Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965), a humanitarian and Noble Peace Price Winner: “Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all livings things, man will not himself achieve peace.” As a result of a reorganization of the group, the name was changed in 2005 to ECAH Animals, Inc.

We currently care for about 40-50 rescue cats living in foster homes or in our sanctuary. Our sanctuary is on a private property and we rely on volunteers to take care of our sanctuary cats. Cats stay in our foster homes or at the sanctuary for as long as needed until they are adopted. The majority of our animals find loving homes, the remaining cats spend the rest of their days romping at our sanctuary or in their foster home.

ECAH Animals is a no-kill animal rescue, meaning we will never euthanize an animal in our care due to space limitations. Because of this policy we can only take in additional animals as others are adopted out.

Mission Statement
To care for homeless cats in a no-kill environment until each is adopted into responsible homes and to advocate humane values and behavior.
