The Haven's Foster Program is responsible for saving many homeless pets and helping them find new loving homes. Dedicated volunteers open their heart and home to unwanted friendly pets who need a second chance. Fostering is just one way we are working to increase our area shelters save rates. Take a look at this video taken just a few days ago. Featured in the short video is a sweet older female Chihuahua named Janus. This girl was picked up as a stray by local animal control and entered the facility scared and nervous. She warmed up slowly with her caregivers and was simply estatic to learn she was going to be fostered since her time was up. Thanks to our volunteers for being the real heros! For more information on our foster program and how you can help, please call us at 251-929-3980 or stop by The Haven today.
