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.
