Welcome to Safe Haven Humane Society and Outreach Center's Saving Pets Challenge page! We are a grassroots animal rescue that is completely run by volunteers. We provide rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming services for dogs, cats, small mammals, and other creatures; offer a pet food pantry and other resources to struggling pet owners in our community; and work tirelessly to educate about the root causes of pet homelessness.
This is such an exciting time for Safe Haven Humane Society and Outreach Center! We recently added a doing business as name -- Haven Animal Rescue and Community Outreach -- and we FINALLY signed a lease on a new shelter building! We expect to be housing pets by mid-May, which is why this challenge is so timely and important! Safe Haven has been operating as a foster-based rescue for almost two full years (since we outgrew our last shelter building). Thanks to our amazing foster families, we've been able to continue helping homeless pets in our community. With a shelter building on the horizon, we will be able to help so many more!
Your support during this challenge will help us get things up and running. Every dollar donated will go toward renovating (adding interior walls to properly separate dogs from cats), furnishing (think cat trees and kuranda beds), outfitting (laundry facilities and a medical refrigerator), and fencing (our new large dog yard) our new building and outdoor space so we can comfortably house and care for the dogs, cats, small mammals, and other creatures who will enter our care. Extra funds also will boost our Animal Care Fund so we're able to provide veterinary care, medicine, food, and other supplies for our newest pets.
