This is Peni she needs a home ~
I have been fostering Miss Peni for almost three weeks. She was very shy, timid and cautious when she first arrived here. Her prior story is tragic and unfortunate. She appeared very broken and worried and her tail was always down. Within a few days, however, Peni started to feel a little more secure. She would let me pet her and didn't seem to mind a few head scratches. Each day, so got a little happier. I saw the tail go up and even wag a few times. Within a few days, she was starting to feel and act like a happy dog. She was playful, and much more approachable. She loves to go outside and run with the other dogs. She loves other dogs, especially, my terrier Wiley. She needs a home where people can spend time with her and give her love and reassurance. She does have a tendency to chase as in cats and squirrels. I think she would enjoy a home where she can run around and play with other dogs. Having another dog gives her tremendous security. She is a very good girl inside. Housebroken and very well mannered. I have fallen in love with her, but unfortunately, I have cats and am worried them. She is very special and needs unconditional love. She has come a long way since the day she arrived at my home. I hope someone has a big heart for this girl...she deserves it.

About Hopes Haven

About Our Rescue Group...

Hopes Haven began as a dream. A televised news story about a case of obscene animal abuse broke our hearts. Video from the scene taken after authorities seized possession of the animals revealed several deceased and emaciated dogs. Of the dogs still alive, only two were determined to have any chance of survival. Marsha called the humane society where the dogs had been taken and asked if a terribly emaciated Doberman that was on the newscast could be held for her to adopt if she survived. The care givers at the shelter named the Doberman Hope. Hope's life had been one of being chained inside of a barn and forced to have litter after litter of puppies, all while rarely seeing the light of day. Although Hope never did fully recover, she did indeed survive and lived with us for almost thirteen months before she died. Hopes Haven is a tribute to her and to all innocent dogs that have had their trust betrayed by unworthy guardians.

We give hope to those that have no place else to go. The old, infirm, and ill will always have a place to go as long as Hopes Haven exists.

We also specialize in northern breed rescue such as Huskies and Malamutes.
