What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We work with community Animal Control and Shelters to help homeless and unwanted dogs and cats find homes with loving families through foster-based care. As a result of this work we help to reduce euthanasia of healthy adoptable pets. We also provide a safe option for pet owners in crisis to surrender their pet. Knowing their pet will be safe and in the home of a foster family reduces the stress of an already stressful and difficult decision. Every dog and cat lives with a foster family until they find their forever families. We provide all of their basic needs including proper food, veterinary care, behavior training, and supplies. Through in-home fostering, we learn about each animal’s temperament, personality, likes/dislikes, and any medical needs. With this first-hand information, we can then find the right family for each dog and cat. This helps us to provide the public interesting in adopting a rescue animal a relationship they can trust.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Rescue and Rehome

1. Rescue, rehabilitate and rehome cats and dogs. Pet Haven volunteers find safe new homes for cats and dogs. All of the animals receive complete veterinary care including exams, spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchip identification. The animals in our adoption program stay in volunteer foster homes until permanent homes are found for them. 2. Spay and neuter to reduce pet overpopulation. All dogs, cats, puppies and kittens that Pet Haven places into permanent adoptive homes are spayed/neutered. In addition, Pet Haven offers a low-cost spay/neuter program to the general public and grants to other companion animal rescue groups to assist their spay/neuter efforts. The grants are focused on altering cats and large-breed dogs where the problem of overpopulation is the greatest. 3. Promote responsible guardianship of companion animals through educational programs. All Pet Haven adopters are provided with animal care information. In addition, Pet Haven publishes a quarterly newsletter, a website, blogs, and has booths at community events, all of which provide information regarding the care of companion animals to the public. 4. Advocate on behalf of companion animals. Public policy and public opinion play an important role in the welfare of companion animals. Pet Haven works with other local animal welfare groups to support legislation and initiatives to benefit animals at the state and local level.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Find quality homes for every animal in our care Encourage responsible companion animal guardianship in our community Advance the value of companion animals in our society Eliminate the need to euthanize dogs and cats as a means of population control through implementation and advocacy of spay/neuter procedures Reduce pet overpopulation through our spay and neuter initiatives Be a rewarding place to volunteer

Strategies for accomplishing our goals: Find quality homes for every animal in our care: We are Minnesota first Foster based Rescue established in 1952. We consider ourselves match makers. By having animals living with fosters in their homes they are able to understand and evaluate the animals behaviors and needs thus making sure the animal is placed with the best family for them ensuring a forever home. Eliminate the need to euthanize unwanted healthy dogs and cats by providing a safe haven through our foster care program: We remove dogs and cats in shelters at risk for euthanasia and place them into loving homes where they can recover, rehabilitate and Facilitate forever families for the animals in our foster program: We do this by matching the right animal for the right family offer pre-adoption and post adoption support including behavior and training support Create the Forever Families Program: As part of our growth we will be moving to offering Temporary Foster Care for pet owners in crisis Encourage responsible companion animal guardianship in our community: We do this through our volunteers and their advocacy in the community Advance the value of companion animals in our society: Eliminate the need to euthanize dogs and cats as a means of population control: We do this through implementation and advocacy of spay/neuter procedures prior to adoption Reduce pet overpopulation through our spay and neuter grant initiatives to help under served populations Be a rewarding place to volunteer where people can make a real difference in the lives of animals and the people who love them.

Pet Haven is capable of reaching its goals through our thoughtfully crafted strategic plan, support of the Board of Directors, Staff and volunteers committed to Pet Haven's growth and longevity. Pet Haven is careful with its resources and utilizes the very strong volunteer base which keeps staffing costs to a minimum allowing more funds for direct animal care programming thus staying true to our mission. As a result Pet Haven has a strong dedicated donor base that continues to grow and support the mission. Pet Haven, established in 1952, has been careful and calculated in its growth to be sure programs are fully supported.

Pet Haven will know if we are making progress through careful data collection on the animals and people we serve through our programming. We will publish this data in our annual reports and have it available for the public to view on our website. Pet Haven believes in transparency in all we do.

We have increased the amount of animals we have saved from municipal shelters by 27% since 2018. Thus increasing our adoptions and providing loving companions to more families in need. We have also increased our ability to help owners in crisis from 2018 to 2020 by 250% providing a safe haven for their pets and peace of mind for the owner in crisis. We have given over $240,000 in grant money to organizations in need of Spay and Neuter services helping to reduce pet over population and the suffering of unwanted animals. We have established an emergency medical fund called the phoenix fund which allows us to bring in unwanted pets in medical crisis, provide for their care and find them forever families when recovered. Moving forward Pet Haven will be exploring a Temporary Foster Program for Owners in Crisis thus reducing the need for surrender and helping to keep families together.
