Pints for Paws

Pet Haven Raised a Pint (or a few) for Paws

Pints for Paws

On June 12, 2014 Pet Haven hosted their first Pint for Paws event at at Summit Brewing Company in St Paul. The event was attended by 103 Pet Haven supporters and about 25 dogs looking to enjoy the (dog days of?) summer. For their libations, attendees had the opportunity to select from a variety of 10 Summit brews and 1919 root beer, while delicious burgers were available from B52 Slider Squad. In total, around $1,500 was raised from Pet Haven through portions of the event ticket proceeds and 10% of the proceeds from B52 Slider Squad.

Pints for PawsPet Haven extends our sincerest thanks to Summit, B52 Slide Squad, and all our of attendees and supporters for helping to make the night a success. We look forward to enjoying another evening on the patio with you and your pups next summer!

Give to the Max Day 2013 a Success

RedbyGive to the Max Day 2013 was another successful fundraising effort for Pet Haven. The final amount that came in through Give to the Max was $5,335, which surpassed Pet Haven’s goal of $5,000 for the day. This was especially impressive given the challenges donors had for many hours during the day while the donation website was down. Throughout the day Pet Haven volunteers worked tirelessly to promote the event through posts on the Pet Haven Facebook page. The success of the event is further evidence of the wonderful donor community that supports Pet Haven. Thank you for your support!


Give to the Max on November 14!

Pet Haven Inc.of MN makes a difference every day through our dog and cat adoption programs, spay and neuter initiative to reduce pet overpopulation, outreach and education, and advocacy on behalf of companion animals.  Your generous support makes all of this work possible, and we couldn’t do it without you!


To help us in these efforts, please consider a donation to Pet Haven on Give to the Max Day on Thursday, November 14th.  Every donation is valuable, but on that specific day the donations are even more valuable! Every donation on November 14th increases the chance for Pet Haven to win a Golden Ticket, which would provide an additional $1,000 donation. Plus, if we place in the top ten for funds raised, we can earn even more to help cats and dogs in need!

Your donations help animals like Bruno, who was found hobbling down the main street in a small rural town with a partial right front leg; or Duchess, who was found by Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue with her face and one back foot and leg covered in porcupine quills. With the generous support of donors like you, both Bruno and Duchess are now healed, healthy, and in loving homes. Read all about their touching stories at our Give MN page linked below. Bruno, Duchess, and all of their Pet Haven friends rely on your support.

Bark at the Park Jumbotron

Target Field Goes to the Dogs for Pet Haven!

Bark at the Park

On Sunday, April 28, Pet Haven raised funds and celebrated with Twins fans at the first Pet Haven Bark at the Park.

130 people purchased tickets through Pet Haven, with a portion of the proceeds going directly to support Pet Haven programs. The fans had a great time on a beautiful day, made even better when the Twins pulled out a 5-0 W-I-N over the Texas Rangers.  Bark at the Park Jumbotron

A highlight of the event was when Armor, one of the wonderful dogs available for adoption through Pet Haven, was on the field during the national anthem. Armor represented companion animals everywhere, and was the first dog ever on Target Field for a Twins game! Interested in adopting Armor? You can find out more here.

Pet Haven also had a special video play on the jumbotron, where it was viewed by thousands. You can watch the video here.

New to Pet Haven? Please consider adopting your next animal from us! And we’re always looking for more volunteers!

Thank you to all of the Pet Haven supporters who attended. We hope to see you again next year!
