What is Pet Haven?
Pet Haven is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless cats and dogs. Pet Haven was founded in 1952. Everyone at Pet Haven is a volunteer; there are no paid staff.
Pet Haven rescues and re-homes cats and dogs, spays and neuters to reduce overpopulation, promotes companion animal welfare, and advocates on behalf of companion animals.
Pet Haven’s adoption program helps homeless dogs and cats find new homes. We provide them with veterinary care including a spay or neuter. All of the animals in our adoption program stay in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted. The foster families care for the animal and learn about its needs and temperament.
Pet Haven also is committed to reducing pet overpopulation. We offer low cost spay and neuter surgeries for the pets of low-income families and grants to other animal rescue groups to help them spay and neuter more animals.
Pet Haven volunteers educate the public about responsible companion animal care. We convey our respect for animals as we talk with prospective new homes for the cats and dogs in our adoption program, meet people at public events, and socialize with friends and family. We encourage others to view their pets as members of the family and to treat them as such.
Pet Haven also advocates on behalf of companion animals. Pet Haven supports legislation and other initiatives that advocate on behalf of companion animal welfare.
