Stretch is the most happy go lucky boy! He arrived to rescue from TN and he’s happy to have a new start on life. This very unique little guy has a special look and personality all his own. Look at that smile!

Stretch can be a little shy at first, but he warms up to everyone very quickly. He loves to play ball and hang around with the other dog at his foster home. He follows his foster mom around the house and the yard, just to see what she’s up to, he loves to be with his human.

Stretch is housebroken and crate trained, though he doesn’t need it as he stays out for extended periods of time and is very well behaved.

Stretch is not fond of the vacuum cleaner or thunderstorms, but once he realizes that he is safe with his new forever family, we’re sure that will be of comfort to him. Stretch is an all around awesome dog! Any family will be lucky to call him theirs!

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...
