The mission of Haven Animal Rescue and Community Outreach is to provide a loving environment for surrendered and stray animals as they search for their forever homes, assist current pet owners to permanently provide appropriate care for their animals, and to engage community members in the issue of pet homelessness. In accordance with its mission statement, Haven Animal Rescue will:
Haven Animal Rescue and Community Outreach provides care for dogs, cats, small mammals and the occasional bird or other creature. In addition to the adoptable pets that are housed at our shelter building, we have a network of loving foster homes to rehabilitate and attend to the homeless pets in our care. We also have assisted with several private pet rehomings to ensure that these pets are finding their true forever families and are not being flipped from home to home or put into dangerous situations. Haven Animal Rescue offers full vetting services and any necessary behavioral training to pets that are surrendered to us and completes background checks and interviews before carefully placing them with an adoptive family.
Haven Animal Rescue and Community Outreach wants people to understand that PETS ARE FAMILY! We host community events that educate about responsible pet ownership, share the spay/neuter/adopt message, and provide updates on issues such as breed specific legislation, dog fighting, problems with puppy mills, and pet abuse and neglect. Haven Animal Rescue doesn't just help the animals in our care. Our volunteers work hard to help all pets and people in our community! We have developed the Pets are Family Assistance Program, which offers pet food and supplies, veterinary vouchers, gift certificates for professional dog training classes, and other resources to pet owners who need a little financial help to provide for their pets or services to overcome behavioral or training issues in order to keep their pets in their homes. Our goal is to keep pets with their families!
Haven Animal Rescue strives to keep pets with their loving families. When life happens and people are temporarily unable to care for their pets -- due to illness, hospitalization, domestic violence, homelessness, military deployment and other situations -- we try to find short-term housing options for their pets with the ultimate goal of reuniting them once their families are settled.
