The Animal Haven is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), no-kill animal shelter that has provided safe, caring and humane refuge to homeless and abandoned cats and dogs since 1948. Our mission is to help homeless animals in need by giving them shelter, food and veterinarian services and adopting them out to loving, permanent homes.
