Is your pet in need of training?
A free online learning university for all things animal welfare.
Are you looking for a new home for your pet?
A healthy pet is easier to re-home! Make certain your pet is up to date on all vaccinations and be ready to provide copies of the vet paperwork. If your pet is not spayed or neutered, we highly recommend getting this done.
Start by asking family, friends, and co-workers if they know anyone who is looking for a new pet. It's important to start the process as soon as you can. Don't wait until it's an emergency/last minute. Ask people in person, but also leave a flyer so they can contact you if they know of someone or decide to adopt your pet themselves.
Post your pet to Rehome By Adopt-A-Pet to help you safely find a loving home. All you need to do is set up your pet's profile in less than 10 mins. Once complete, your pet's profile will be posted on Adopt-A-Pet.com and be seen by millions of visitors each month!
Otherwise, you can post your flyer to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Next Door, and Craig's List. Don't forget bulletin boards at church, work, veterinary offices, pet stores, restaurants, and coffee shops.
We do not accept owner surrenders and we are not able to post your flyers to our Facebook page.
SAR Canine Training offers group, individual, and virtual training. Training is open to anyone but be sure to mention if you have adopted a Haven pet!
Did you find a stray animal?
Many strays are owned pets that just happened to get lost, so the best thing you can do for that found animal is to try and help them find their owner!
Post a picture on your local Lost & Found sites such as:
Community Facebook groups near your neighborhood
Hang flyers in the area the animal was found
Check the animal for a microchip. Any shelter or vet's office will check for free
Hang flyers at the local pound, humane society and vet offices
Check/Post on Craigslist Lost & Found
Always ask for proof of ownership!
If you cannot find the owner, you can be placed on our waitlist. We do NOT accept animals without an appointment. Currently we are experiencing high volumes of dumped and stray animals, it could be months before we have the space to accept an animal. Since we are a no kill shelter, that operates by donations, we can only take in what we adopt out and have the capacity to care for. We do not have a vet on staff, so we do not take animals that are injured or in need of immediate medical care.
If you would like to be placed on the waitlist, please complete our intake waitlist form.
If you are looking for an immediate place to take a stray, dumped or abandoned animal, you can find are shelters by zip code at:
