Welcome to Safe Haven Humane Society



SAFE HAVEN HUMANE SOCIETY is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group in Michigan that rescues dogs and cats from a variety of abandonment situations. Funding for our rescue work comes entirely from donations by fellow animal lovers and fundraising events. No funding is received from any national, state or local organization, and there is no paid staff. All rescue work and re-homing of these abandoned pets is done by volunteers.
We work very closely with local animal shelters, many rural, in Michigan to pull pets in jeopardy of euthanasia due to lack of homes. Some of the pets coming into our program have serious medical needs that were not addressed by their previous owners. We try very hard to help these animals as funds allow and then place them in new permanent homes.
Safe Haven Humane Society has no central facility and all of our rescued animals are in foster homes so we are limited only by the number of foster homes we have available.
The battle against pet over-population is real and requires constant work. All of the pets Safe Haven rescues and places into new homes are spayed or neutered first. We also take every opportunity to educate the public about the importance of spay and neuter and when funds allow, we help others by subsidizing spay/neuter surgeries for those who cannot afford it.

AVAILABLE PETS: See three of this month's featured pets, as well as short bios and photographs of all pets now in foster homes with Safe Haven Humane Society. 

ADOPTING A PET: We have many amazing dogs and cats in our foster program; some with pretty remarkable stories to tell. Actually, the fact that they have come into our program means they've been on an incredible journey so far. Go to our Adopting a Pet page to learn how you might adopt one of our wonderful pets.

FOSTERING A PET: Safe Have Humane Society is always looking for good foster homes for our pets -- and the pets just keep on coming to us. There is more reward in fostering a pet than in almost any other endeavor you will pursue in your lifetime. Go to our Fostering a Pet page to learn how you, too, can foster a pet.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: There are many ways that you can help Safe Haven Humane Society. You can donate money to help a sick or injured animal or volunteer at a special event. Go to our How you Can Help page to see some worthwhile and gratifying ways that you can help Safe Haven Humane Society.

OUR WISH LIST: We have many things on our wish list that you could help us with, from small wishes like bleach and paper towels, to bigger wishes like dog crates, to even bigger wishes like your outdated computer or printer. Go to Our Wish List page to see some of the things that you might already have around the house that you would like to donate to us -- all donations are tax deductible.

KITTY AND PITTY FIX: Right now we are offering a $10 spay and neuter program for cats from Ionia (48846 zip code) and Belding (48809 zip code) with  a grant we received from PetSmart Charities. We are also offering a $20 spay and neuter program for pit bulls in Ionia County. Go to our Kitty and Pitty Fix page to learn more about how these programs work and how you might be able to take advantage of them.

PHOTO GALLERY: You most certainly will want to check out our Photo Gallery while you are here to see photos sent to us by the families of our adopted rescues. Most photos have a short story to go with them. They are always uplifting and entertaining. Enjoy!

We also have an online ADOPTION APPLICATION that you can fill out if you see a pet that interests you. Having a completed and approved application on file with us will speed up the process once you find a companion animal that you would like to share your life with.

We also have a CALENDAR OF EVENTS, a HELPFUL RESOURCES page, a HELP WITH MEDICAL EXPENSES page, and a FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS page that you might want to check out, as well as current and past NEWSLETTERS
