Safe Haven pulls adoptable pets from high-kill shelters in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Missouri and Illinois. There is no physical shelter so all the dogs are placed with a loving foster family to help guide them, acclimatize them to people and other animals and to help them learn what living with a loving family is like. No physical shelter also means that each dog gets extra special attention by their foster families.
The dog can take their time to find their forever home; at a shelter, unfortunately, many dogs are only given so many days until euthanasia happens. It is an extremely sad and heartbreaking reality at many over-crowded shelters. This is another reason the volunteers at Safe Haven Dog Rescue are spay and neuter advocates. Every pet that comes into their rescue network will be spayed or neutered prior to being adopted. By spaying and neutering our pets, we not only drastically reduce their chances of developing testicular or ovarian cancers in their lifetime, but will also reduce the pet population, and, also, the need for the practice of euthanasia.
If you are ready to adopt a furry friend and are able to provide them with a loving, forever home, contact the rescue. Check out their website to see all of their adoptable fur babies, or come to one of their weekly adoption events at area Petco stores. If you would like to "meet" one or more of the dogs, contact the rescue. If you have any questions about adoption or any animal-related matters, Safe Haven is just a call away.
The staff takes great pride in placing the proper dog with the proper family. They will take into account potential adopters lifestyles and present living situations to find the perfect pet for them.
If you aren't ready to adopt yet or are unable to foster right now, perhaps you can volunteer some of your spare time to SHDR. Any help you can give would be appreciated so much!
