About Our Rescue Group:

We are a dedeicated group of volunteers who house abandon, abused and neglected dogs in our homes until they can find a forever home. Our organzition operates from the donations that we receive. We are a 501 C 3 non-profit organization so all donations are tax deductible. S.A.F.E. Animal Haven is comprised of a group of volunteers with many years of experience who came together with the belief that we could make a difference one animal at a time, one child at a time, one day at a time. Our volunteers conduct educational programs in our school system and try to network with other groups in order to make a difference in the world.

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.
