In 2004, The Haven's new Executive Director Michael Graham supervised his plan to reconstruct the original "canine holding area" to create a medical room that would provide a greater level of medical care for our animals at the shelter. This remodel provided real time data on our new residents including saving the non-profit organizations an estimated $25,000 in the first year alone. This data collected is shared with staff, volunteers and potential adopters. The Haven's life-saving team quickly begins working towards a plan of rehabilitation and locating that new-life-long loving home. Since then, hundreds of homeless dogs and cats have been provided with the assessments and medical care they need.
Many of the animals we are able to accept into our Adoption and Foster program are sick and/or injured. Having the medical data collected onsite and shared with our foster parents is extremely helpful when planning for the animals future. A nuturing home enviroment is the ultimate place for an animal that is in recovery. The shelter is always in need of compassionate individuals to open to their heart and home to one or more of our homeless residents.
In additoin to sick and injured animals, The Haven also has kittens and puppies that are motherless and have been dumped. Our Foster Care volunteers care for these helpless and homeless animals until they are ready to be placed up for adoption or room becomes available at the facility. This effort gives The Haven invaluable knowledge about each pet's needs and allows us to eventually place them in the perfect "furever" home. We provide the essentials such as food, toys, litter, and any medical attention the animal may need. We just need loving, patient, and kind hearted locals with the time to volunteer.
If you are interested in opening your heart and your home to help one of these "special" animals, please contact our office at 251-929-3980 today.
