Come Meet our Pets:

The adoption events that we attend can be found on the "Upcoming Events" page of our main website http://www.LHSK9.org.

Our Adoption Process:

Libby's Haven requires:
a written application (may be e-mailed)
personal and veterinarian references
a phone conversation with a Libby's Haven adoption counselor
a home visit from a Libby's Haven volunteer prior to final adoption.

We only schedule meetings between prospective adopters and dogs in their foster homes after these steps have been completed. We also attend area adoption events with our Senior dogs and we encourage interested folks to meet Libby's Haven dogs at these events. Prospective adopters do not need to have gone through our application process to meet our Seniors at the various adoption events! You can check our web site at www.lhsk9.org to see what events we will be attending.

When you adopt a Libby's Haven dog, we ask you to pay an adoption fee. These fees cover a portion of veterinary expenses and help to make our continuing rescue work possible.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
