Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary is a newly formed non-profit organization whose goal is to establish a facility which is unique to Silicon valley. Currently, we are seeking to connect with individuals or businesses that are interested in investing in the vision and mission of the Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary.
Additionally, SHAS is working towards:
Instilling humane principles into society via special educational programs.
Educating the public regarding the overpopulation of animals.
Aiding in the prevention of abuse and cruelty to animals.
Providing awareness campaigns regarding animal welfare.
Rehabilitating injured and abused animals. Promoting responsible pet ownership. Promoting the placement of animals into loving, responsible and permanent homes. up
There are so many animal rescue groups. What makes your organization different? Each group has a different approach toward the problem of abandoned and unwanted animals. Some just take purebreds, some have size restrictions, some only take cats and some only take the "easy to place animals." It is true that our sanctuary cannot take aggressive animals in for safety reasons. Many of our foster families have children and we cannot put them in any type of danger. We take in animals that are injured, ill, abused and discarded and nurse them back to health with love, medical assistance and trust. That's what makes us so special and we hope that this devotion merits your financial support.
Our sanctuary is a no-kill, "cageless facility" where animals will be housed together in small groups to help relieve the stress of being isolated and abandoned. The dog section will house approximately 60-75 dogs and is a new concept in care for animals. They will have a place to run and play in a special fenced area and the volunteers will work with them on "doggie manners" and training. The cat section, which will house approximately 55-60 cats, will be a wonderful place for our feline friends to gather, also in groups, to lay in the sun by the window, climb a tree and purr the day away or just sit in the lap of a volunteer and be petted. We will also have approximately 3-5 acres of open space devoted to the care and safety of feral cats.
We will have a veterinary clinic, visitation/play areas, area for incoming animals in need of evaluation, and adoption area. This facility would also have an educational center in which we would host various programs for the community such as spay/neuter awareness, behavioral seminars and other programs of interest to the community.
In addition to caring for the animals at the sanctuary, we would also like to implement several animal protection and education programs in the community. For instance, we would like to: Provide safe, loving homes for the pets of elderly individuals who can no longer care for their pets; develop an adoption exchange program with other animal care groups to reduce the number of euthanize animals, and establish a community outreach and educational program through the local schools for animal rights' education.
The Sanctuary will also provide a relocation point for feral cats in an effort to reduce the growing population in Silicon Valley. Efforts will be made to reduce the population through spaying, neutering, vaccinating and releasing them into a natural and safe environment.
