Story
HI! My name is Darby! I am an 11 months old, petite little pitty mix and have been through so much in my short little life. In November 2023, I was hit by a car, resulting in a terrible injury to my arm. My owners couldn't afford to provide me the medical treatment I so desperately needed so they tied me to the patio fence of another woman's home with a note attached to my collar that said "take care of my dog, I don't have the money to get her leg fixed". That's where my brand new life began! I was hospitalized almost immediately, after radiographs revealed I had a badly fractured right front radius and ulna very close to my elbow. This was painful for me and it made it hard for me to use my arm, so I stopped. I underwent a complex surgery to place an external fixator with pins to provide me the stability needed for my arm to heal in the proper position. After weeks of rechecks to change my bumpers and in-patient physical therapy, I was finally able to get this contraption removed in mid January, 2024 when x-rays showed my bones had healed fantastically. Throughout my ordeal, everyone I have ever met fell in love with me. I made a lot of great friends who just adored the wonderful and resilient girl I am. I love everyone I know (especially kids!) and am so happy to see and meet new people. I am always there to greet you with the cutest little wiggle but when you walk through the door! I have been eager to learn since the first day I was rescued and do wonderful with children and other dogs. My foster family has grown to love me so incredibly much. They would like for me to find a forever family with kids to play with and a fur sibling that can show me the ropes. I love to cuddle up to my foster fur brother, Griffin, and play with my toys! I know the difference between my toys and my foster human siblings' toys and if I get them confused, I know to leave those alone without having to be told twice. Stuffies are my vice and I will attempt to eat them, so stronger toys are probably best for me. One's I can't destroy. I am an AMAZING cuddler and have even been known to sleep with my family on my back, similar to a human. Although I am crate trained, if you let me on the couch so I can snuggle you, I will be forever grateful! I just always want to be near you and with those I love! An active family that will take me along is my ultimate dream. Darby is up to date on vaccinations, 4DX tested, microchipped and spayed. She will do best in a home with a physically fenced yard, so she can run and play safely. Adopters must be within a two-hour radius of Cedar Rapids, IA. Indoor homes only.

Story
Let me tell you about this adorable dog named Daisy! 🐶❤️ Daisy is an absolute love and has such a gentle way of showing her affection. She's a pro at gently jumping up to greet the people she loves! 🥰 Daisy is so great with kids and other dogs, and that's a big plus for her social skills! 🐾👶🐕 While she hasn't been tested with cats yet, she does tend to bark at them when she sees them. But hey, maybe that's just because she's following the lead of the other dogs around her! 🐱 One thing you can count on with Daisy is her good recall. When you call her name, she comes running back to you like a champ! And when it comes to going for walks, she's a pro on the leash. No pulling or tugging, just a nice, enjoyable stroll. 🐾🚶‍♀️ The best part about Daisy is that she's not a big barker. She's a well-behaved pup who loves her people and craves their company. With Daisy by your side, you'll have a loyal and loving furry friend who brings so much joy to your life. 🏡❤️🐶 So if you're looking for a fantastic companion, Daisy might just be the perfect match for you!

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Nutmeg came to Safe Haven as a stray in March 2023. After never being reclaimed, she has been brought up-to-date on her vaccinations, examined by our Veterinarian, she tested negative for Heartworm, and has been started on monthly flea/tick & heartworm preventatives. Upon her arrival and once we were able to get to know her a little more,  it was appearant that she had a few medical concerns that needed further medical attention before being released for adoption to her new forever home. Nutmeg has occasional coughing or gag-like spells. Typically, these spells occur when she is pulling at the end of the leash while on her walks. They also have been known to occur when she gets excited about her surroundings - like other dogs nearby, walking past her kennel space, etc. Her initial veterinary exam was a visual exam. This visual exam did not reveal any causes for the coughing that was being occasionally noticed. Our veterinarian recommended further testing done by Frey Pet Hospital. At this appointment, Nutmeg had x-rays and imaging done. Nothing abnormal was seen through this imaging - so it was recommended to set up an appointment with Iowa State University for an upper and lower endoscopy and rhinescopy. These were done hoping to find answers or a cause for the coughing that Nutmeg experiences. These procedures at Iowa State University did not yield anything to be wrong anatomically. It was suggested that Nutmeg may be having some allergy-like effects to food and/or environmental allergies causing her coughing spells. She is currently receiving a special prescription diet food for her overall health.Nutmeg currently receives a couple different medications to help channel her behaviors while under our care at the shelter. The shelter environment is a stressful environment for many dogs including, Nutmeg. Nutmeg has been known to exhibit poor behaviors such as jumping, nipping & biting, excessive barking, and other alike behaviors since being under our care at Safe Haven. She can be a very exciteable girl who doesn't always understand her limits nor understand how to calm herself down safely. A home that has experience with resource guarding and reactiveness would lead Nutmeg to be most successful in a home setting. After getting to know Nutmeg more, we do believe a home without children would be best as Nutmeg can be somewhat unpredictable with her actions and children may cause her to be on-edge more so.If you feel you may be able to provide the home Nutmeg deserves, please complete an online adoption application as the first step of the meet & greet/adoption process. This online adoption application can be found on our website at www.wesavepets.com. Once the application has been submitted, a Safe Haven volunteer will be in contact to discuss the next steps.   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.February 29, 2024, 5:32 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Sugar! This sweetie came to us a few months ago as a local stray and after never being reclaimed, she has had her vet work all brought up-to-date. Upon her arrival at Safe Haven, it was evident that she was not feeling the greatest as several Safe Haven staff and volunteers were reporting continual diarrhea and vomiting in her kennel. When our veterinarian was able to examine Sugar, she knew something was not right - after further testing thru an ultrasound, it appeared that Sugar's intestines were not looking the way they should. After a several hour long 'exploratory surgery', our veterinarian was able to come to the conclusion that Sugar had some serious infection going on along with previous infectious material within her intestines and her very enlarged spleen was not keeping up with fighting off present infection. After overcoming a very intrusive surgery, Sugar was started on a very strict and special diet along with several medications to help her continue to fight off any infection that was still present internally. After receiving 24/7 around the clock care - Sugar may have gotten a little spoiled with all the attention from many Safe Haven volunteers... she learned to love attention & affection very quickly! :)Fast forward about two months, Sugar is doing really well! She has completed her rounds of antibiotics and medications have been finished. She has worked her way towards a 'normal' diet over the last several weeks and has been doing very well with this transition. Our veterinarian is ready for Sugar to be cleared and officially available for adoption! Sugar would do best in a home as an only pet, as she does not get along well with other dogs nor cats. Once you're able to meet Sugar - you will know, Sugar is the only pet you will need to fill your heart! Sugar is a very strong and active girl - always on the go!! She would love an active family with many long walks in her future - a fenced yard would be wonderful for this active girl as well! Interested in meeting or adopting Sugar? Please complete an online adoption application for her which can be found on our website at www.wesavepets.com. Once the application is submitted, a volunteer will be in contact with you shortly.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.February 29, 2024, 5:32 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Stewie! This handsome fella was surrendered to us as his previous owner needed to move and wasn't able to take him with. Stewie is quite the charmer - he loves all the attention! His previous owner did not think he would get along well with cats or other small animals as he has a high prey drive. Since being at the shelter, we have been able to learn more about Stewie and his prey drive. We believe he would be most successful in a home as the only pet. He strives on people attention and affection - so Stewie would be the only pet you would need!! Before being at the shelter, he was used to being outdoors all the time in a kennel, so being inside where the AC is cool is quite a nice change for him! He is always ready to go for a walk and loves to help himself on the couch in the lobby - just so he knows he has an audience to please! Stewie loves to play fetch - and we have learned very quickly that once he has the ball... it's best to find another one to throw as he is very quick to latch onto the ball and not let go!  If you're interested in meeting this sweet boy, please fill out an adoption application and contact us to set up a meeting time.
