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.

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.June 14, 2024, 2:27 pm

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.June 14, 2024, 2:27 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. 3/27/24 Update: Diego & Dora are a sibling-pair, very much bonded to one another. These two were adopted and found themselves a home in which they were well cared for for the past two years. Due to the change of living conditions and long working hours for their previous owner, they have been brought back to Safe Haven knowing that a well-suited home will be out there looking for them! Diego & Dora are quite the pair - they both have their own personalities, but compliment one another well. They enjoy their walks, and are both great on a leash. Since both are somewhat larger-sized dogs, a home with lots of room to explore and a yard to safely run and exercise would be great for these siblings. A fenced-in yard would be a huge bonus for them! Daily enrichment, exercise, and love (of course) are all part of their requests for their new home. Enrichment activities and daily exercise will not only help stimulant their busy minds, but will also help tire them out during "quiet time". Diego & Dora are looking for a home with no small pets - as they are both have a high prey drive that can be witnessed when seeing a rabbit, squirrels, and cats.    To ensure proper introductions, we would ask for an initial meet & greet to take place for any current dogs in a potential future home for these two. In order to set up a meet & greet, please complete an online adoption application 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.  Please read more below to learn about their initial arrival to Safe Haven in 2021: This wonderful sibling pair is looking for a new home together due to a disabling medical condition of their owner that left him unable to meet their needs. Dora and Diego were born on April 1, 2017. They are spayed/neutered, and up to date on vaccinations,  Heartworm testing and monthly preventative, and have been boarded at a local facility that gives them glowing reviews.  Dora and Diego are great dogs that enjoy meeting new people, even kiddos!  They also have been enjoying long walks by a local dog walker, who also takes them to the dog park.  They do get along with certain other dogs, but not all dogs, because Dora was once attacked by another dog.  So dog introductions need to be done carefully since they can understandly be a bit selective in their canine friends.   Their family also reports that Dora and Diego need a new home without cats, because both dogs do have a very high prey drive that is witnessed when they see a rabbit or squirrel - so their ideal home will not have any small pets.  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.June 14, 2024, 2:27 pm
