What is The Haven Animal Care Shelter?
The Haven Animal Care Shelter is a non-profit foundation,
established in 1977 by Dr. Brenda and Joe Wilbanks.
The Haven is a no-kill, non-profit animal sanctuary,
and is generally home to over 100 animals, primarily dogs and cats.
The Haven occupies a seven-acre property near Lubbock, TX.
In addition to special needs animals such as those with chronic illnesses and the elderly,
the Haven shelters a wide variety of adoptable dogs and cats who are in need of good, loving homes.
We encourage spay and neuter of household pets,
provide educational programs for schools and community groups,
and offer pet therapy programs to the community.
Goals of the Haven include:
ØSaving the lives of helpless animals…one life at a time.
ØEducating people to be responsible pet owners…one person at a time.
ØImproving the lives of children through our pet therapy program…one child at a time.
ØChanging the world to a kinder and more peaceful place…one day at a time.
Generosity at its Finest
To everyone who has donated to the Haven, whether this has been in time at the shelter, dog and cat food, toys, leashes and tick treatment, or whether this has been monetary, we at the Haven would like to express our most sincere thanks. We are rescuing and adopting every week and with your help are allowed to continue in our efforts to speak for animals that cannot speak for themselves. The number of our animals is growing, but with the community support that we have received, we hope to continue being able to better the lives of sick, abandoned, and forgotten animals. Thank you again!
