Adoptions at the Haven

Virtual Adoption at the Haven
There are probably a lot of you out there wishing you could help, but know you can't adopt an animal right now. Not to worry, there is a program just for you at the Haven. We call it the Virtual Adoption Option. You simply pick out an animal or group of animals and spend some time helping them at the shelter. It costs you nothing but your time, and you can have some of the benefits of having a pet of your own. We appreciate it and so do the animals.
  • The adoption option allows you or your organization to adopt an animal of your choice while it lives at the shelter.
  • The idea is for you to spend some time with your adopted pet, be responsible for its needs, like grooming and socializing it, and even taking it out for day trips.
  • You receive unconditional love and gratitude, as well as helping your adopted pet with its socialization, preparing it for future adoption
  • While food and water are provided by the Haven, you are welcome to bring treats, toys, or anything you think the dog may enjoy!  Spoil them as if they were your own, just realize that they are still up for adoption even when you virtually adopt them.  If they get adopted, that's a good thing!  That means you can adopt another dog and help him or her to find a forever home!
Fostering for the Haven

Fostering is a great way to help if you are able. We like to have our babies that may need some extra work (being socialized, taught manners, etc) to be fostered over more adoptable animals that are already ready for a forever home. Just be aware that you may fall in love with your foster and decide you'd like to adopt them!
