Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network and The Haven announced they will be teaming up to find adoptive homes for an additional 50 furry felines in Baldwin County.


Throughout June, you can adopt any cat 6 months or older for just $5 from the no-kill shelter located in Fairhope. The MelanieHaven and other local animal control shelters have been pounced on by lots of kittens and puppies lately. The no-kill, non-profit collaborates with area municipal shelters in Baldwin to reduce shelter overcrowding and increase the communities save rate. This adoption promotion will help accomplish that by transferring healthy and treatable cats and dogs from Baldwin municipal shelters to The Haven where they are made ready for adoption. This helps the agency get closer to reaching their mission – ending pet homelessness.


“We are thrilled and grateful to be able to join our Network Partners to help save more kittens,” stated Michael Graham, executive director for The Haven. “Cats typically make up...


The phrase “estate plan” sounds like a complicated set of material that only very wealthy people need, but in fact it refers to Estate Planning Seminar May 6 2016the documents that almost everyone needs, whether their financial and familial affairs are simple or complex.

ReSale Shop Yard Sale 2016 PosterThe Haven needs Stuff!

One of the venues for The Haven to generate money is through their unique Resale Shop located at 357 Morphy Avenue in Fairhope. Gently used items such as china, dishware, lamps, jewelry, and other decorative items can be viewed and purchased. Finding a nugget in any resale shop is always the dream for anyone who loves to shop thrifty. Twice a year, the dedicated shop volunteers and manager hold a Yard Sale to further generate money for the animals and perhaps provide a means for people to find that treasure.

The next yard sale is Saturday, April 23 from 8a-1p and the shop can really use some good donations. 

Because the Resale Shop is small, there are certain types of stuff that they cannot accept: clothing, large items such as refrigerators, and electronics, such as TVs, computers and printers. However, Heather Delker, our ReSale Shop manager, strongly suggests that if one is not sure, to call the Shop at 929-1911. The volunteers pride themselves on the quality of products they offer to the public. Giving up your unwanted or unused stuff can be a win-win for both sides. The giver gets a cleaned out house and the Haven gets much needed revenue.

Other-worldly creatures on two and four legs parade through Fairhope During The Haven’s 13th Annual Mystic Mutts of Revelry Parade


Almost 1,000 revelers paraded through downtown Fairhope during the 13th annual Mystic Mutts of Revelry (MMOR) Parade January 30. The “Woof Trek- A Rescue Odyssey” science fiction theme brought out almost 500 adults, 150 children and 300 pups for the annual fundraiser for homeless animals.


“We want to thank everyone who contributed to the overwhelming success of the parade. We had a 97 percent increase in profit Dog at MMOR 2016compared to all previous MMOR parades,” said MMOR Chairperson, Jenny Williams. We are incredibly appreciative of the support from the community.


Gorgeous weather brought out heavy crowds along the parade route. Parade watchers were treated to sci-fi and Mardi Gras costumes on mutts and humans alike. “The MMOR committee has worked for the several months to make the parade and this event amazing. They give of themselves because we all care so much about rescued animals, and we believe it is
