aspca-fyf-rescue-shareable with Haven logoThis October, during Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, the Haven will be participating in the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) national Find Your Fido initiative to raise awareness about homeless animals and help find safe, loving homes for dogs in the community. We are taking this opportunity to thank our donors, sponsors, and adopter parents past and future and appeal to everyone in between to come support your local shelter.

The ASPCA estimates that approximately 3.3 million dogs enter U.S. animal shelters every year, where they sit waiting, anywhere from days to years, for a loving family to take them home. The ASPCA #FindYourFido campaign is designed to make the reality of adopting a pet come to life in the form of an outreach program: during the month of October, Fido – a cardboard cutout ambassador for adoptable dogs in every city – will be crisscrossing the country to illustrate how easy it is to picture a shelter pet in your daily life and encourage animal adoption.

“We’re so grateful to ASPCA for supporting local shelters by helping us to organize these types of large-scale events,” said Michael Kennedy, Adoption Coordinator with The Haven. “We have many loving adoptable dogs and we hope everyone finds in their hearts a place for a new family member, even a four-legged one.”

Here at The Haven, we know how expensive it can be to care for a dog. When you adopt a dog from us, you are getting a dog that has been spayed/neutered; microchipped; and is up-to-date on rabies, 5-in-1, and Bordetella shots at no additional charge to you.
