Just like dating competitions have procedures to find out how compatible contestants are with each other, The Haven has an adoption process. This process, which includes potential adopters filling out applications, assures each pet and family is perfectly matched. Dating competitions come with prizes contestants can win. The Haven sends each adopted pet home with prizes that include a free bag of Hills Science Diet and 30 days of free pet health insurance. All Haven animals are up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, dewormed, spayed/neutered, tested for heartworms and treated if necessary, tested for feline AIDS and leukemia, and receive monthly parasite prevention.


The Haven would like to match at least 20 pets with furrever families. A few contestants are: Catelyn Stark loves playing outside in fresh air and sunshine, walks and chowing down on a Kong. Janice is ...

The Haven offers free estate planning seminar Nov. 6

 FAIRHOPE, Ala. -- In recent years, a cryptic commercial asked, “What would happen to your family if you weren’t here tomorrow?” The Estate Planning Seminar Nov 6 2015 FBHaven wants you to think about what would happen to your furry, feathered or other less-traditional family members.

“We spend as much or more time with our pets as with our two-legged family members. Their care, feeding and happiness are often more of a priority than that of two-legged family members, though some of us might hesitate to admit that,” said Michael Graham, executive director of The Haven.

“We’re more attuned to their needs simply because they’re not able to help themselves,” he said, “and we have to ask ourselves what would happen to those furry family members if they outlive us.”

The Haven wants to help ensure a safe and secure future for pets through a free workshop on estate planning to care for them after you’re gone, noon to 1 p.m., Friday, November 6 at The Baldwin House  Assisted Living located at 10171 Papa George Street in Daphne. Speaking on the topic will be national speaker and local attorney Kyla Kelim with Aging in Alabama.

The seminar is free, and a complimentary lunch is provided by Mar y Ann ’s De li, but seating is limited. Reserve your seat before November 6 by calling 251-929-2494.

“You should plan now to ensure that they continue receiving the same level of care if they outlive you. And, you can be almost guaranteed they won’t contest the will or be upset if they don’t get grandma’s silver,” he added.
