Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed.

Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family.

About Safe Haven Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small 501 C3 nonprofit rescue located in Elburn, Illinois. In 2014, Safe Haven Dog Rescue became its own non-profit. We are licensed by the Illinois Agriculture Department.
The majority of our dogs and puppies are pulled from Kill Pounds and Shelters in KY, TN, AL and Illinois. When a foster home is available we will also accept owner relinquishment’s due to illness or foreclosure. We work hard to find local rescue groups within these states to pull the dogs into their program while we coordinate transportation and placement into foster homes.
Please take a few moments to read the stories about the dogs and puppies we have available for adoption. We disclose everything we know about the dogs, sometimes we know a lot often we know only that they were strays, thrown away on the side of the road, in the woods, or found in abandoned houses. While we don’t always know their past we are certain that their future is much brighter.
We hope that you and your family are part of the future…..

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have adoption events most Saturdays at the Geneva PetCo on Randall Road from 11-2pm. Please check our Facebook Page Safe Haven Dog Rescue for more info!
