Has your dog been trying to leap tall mailboxes in a single bound? Has he been trying to run like The Flash? He’s telling you he can’t wait for The Haven’s 12th annual Mystic Mutts of Revelry parade on Saturday, Feb. 7,  2015. The parade theme this year is “Superheroes to the Rescue.”
 
Led by Grand Marshals, the parade will begin at 1:00 pm from the Fairhoper’s Community Park located on the corner of S. Church Street and Morphy Avenue. Walkers can pre-register online or at the hospitality tent on parade day. To pre-register ($25 per well behaved, leashed and currently vaccinated dog and two human escorts), visit this link by Feb. 6 at 4:00 pm:  http://www.eventbee.com/v/havenforanimals/boxoffice . Registration on parade day ($30) will be open until 12:30 pm. Additional mutts and escorts from the same household are $5 each. All proceeds help The Haven feed and shelter homeless animals in Baldwin County.

Creating a better community for people and pets in Baldwin County has been this nonprofit's goal for over 15 years. The no-kill animal group is pleased to have received a grant from Best Friends Animal Society®  to help accomplish this goal.
 
The Haven No-Kill Animal Shelter™ participates in Best Friends' No More Homeless Pets® Network, a program that supports grassroots animal rescue groups by providing partners like The Haven™ with opportunities to help save more homeless pets in their communities.
 
“Our dedicated team of donors, volunteers and staff are committed to creating and sustaining a no-kill community. They have shown this through their continued support year after year.  Add to their generosity support from local and national leaders such as Best Friends Animal Society®  , and The Haven™ has an even greater chance to achieve such a goal," said Michael Graham, executive director for The Haven™ .

Baby New Year is here! In celebration of the new year and their commitment to ending euthanasia as a means of animal control, The Haven will have a “New Year, New Pet”, adoption on Saturday, January 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Pet Supermarket in Daphne. Then one week later on their usual 2nd Saturday of the month, they will be at PetSmart at the Eastern Shore Shopping Plaza, giving animals in their care a second chance. The 501 (c) 3 animal shelter is spotted all over town in their MARU (Mobile Adoption Rescue Unit), just one of the no-kill shelter’s main resources which help achieve their life-saving mission.

“Bring them home for the holidays,” says the life-saving team at The Haven. Throughout the entire month of December, The Haven, who will be partnering with Best Friends, will offer any cat three years and over at the reduced adoption fee of $25. That is a savings of $40!  While everyone usually gravitates towards kittens, often the older cats are overlooked.   However, a playful kitten may be too much for some potential adopters, so a calm cat whose personality is already established may be the best answer for some households. In addition, a family’s existing cat may not readily accept a lively kitten, so they may have more success with an older cat.
