About this organisation

Pets Haven Animal Shelter is a facility that re-homes orphan cats, kittens dogs and puppies who would otherwise have no future.

Animals are rescued from death row pounds, puppy farms and the community. Animals who do not require rehabilitation are kept at our shelter whilst waiting to be adopted into a new homes. Animals which require rehabilitation are placed into approved foster homes, with all medical and like expenses paid by Pets Haven. Once the animal has recovered, the animal is also placed up for adoption.

All animals in our care are vet checked, desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and scanned for ringworm. Every animal is temperament tested prior to arrival at the shelter. The staff and volunteers then spend time getting to know each animal so that they can help prospective adopters make an educated decision on whether the animal they are interested in is suitable for them. If a Pets Haven staff member does not think an adoption is appropriate, the adoption will not proceed. The correct environment, home, lifestyle and family for our animals are our greatest concerns. Our animals have already gone through enough pain and uncertainty, they need homes that will last a lifetime.

We also take in unwell animals and cruelty cases and we provide the required veterinary treatment and after care. The animals that come to us mistreated, malnourished, abused or neglected often require extensive medical treatment and we always provide what they require to recover. Foster carers help immensely as they provide a wonderful, safe, loving home environment where the rehabilitation process can occur.

Thank you for visiting our Facebook page, we hope we are able to help you find your perfect furkid. After adopting we can also help you get through any rough spots by offering training tips and other advice.
