Pet Haven has 71 years of rescuing, fostering, creating families, and providing a lasting safety net for pets. We are proud to be Minnesota’s FIRST foster-based rescue organization incorporated on November 3rd, 1952, and receiving our 501c3 status in 1964.
WE CHANGE LIVES.
CHANGES THAT LEAVE LASTING RIPPLE EFFECTS.
Last year we did something monumental After 70 years of working remotely, we were able to open a facility in the Frogtown/Rondo neighborhood of St Paul giving us a larger impact. A trust was established specifically to cover costs for physical space. No donor dollars are needed for the facility. Your donations go to where they are needed most, animal care.
This year we did something that created even wider-reaching ripple effects and opened our own surgical suite in June!
Thanks to the incredible generosity of a Pet Haven supporter who made this happen, over 400 rescued pets have received services and we have been able to extend services to other rescue partners.
Why is this important?
Veterinary medical services are becoming increasingly difficult to find and rising costs are inhibiting the ability to save more lives. To be sustainable we must shift away from outsourcing vet care. Our medical care costs went from $30,000 a month to $17,000. extending services to smaller rescues that were having difficulty finding affordable services we save more lives. Once pets are they can be adopted and new ones can be brought in. Otherwise, pets wait and foster homes are unavailable to help others.
Without the generosity of the one person who donated the funding for our surgical suite, we would have to turn pets and people away.
GENEROSITY CREATES RIPPLE EFFECTS
WHY SUPPORT PET HAVEN
We focus our efforts here in Minnesota because we have seen a massive surge since 2019 in pets entering our Minnesota shelters. Costs are rising, owners in crisis unable to care for their pets have fewer and fewer options, and rural areas are being hit hard with a lack of resources and an increase of pets in crisis.
Our work is more important than ever. We depend on generosity to be able to do this work. Your support is key.
