Last friday we met the crew of Pets haven and they really are a fantastic group of dedicated people who really need everyones support.
There's lots you can do for Pets Haven, donate (of course!) volunteer, and fundraise.
Get in contact with them if you live near or around Woodend (its only 50 minutes from Melbourne) and go down for a visit. who knows, you might just find a new member of your family!!
Pets Haven Pro Life Animal Shelter is a facility that houses homeless, lost or abandoned cats and dogs. They do not euthanise animals for economic reasons; the only time an animal will be euthanised is aggressive temperament or the animal is extremely unwell and the prognosis is not favourable. Animals in general are kept at the shelter until they are either reclaimed by an owner or adopted to a new owner. All animals in their care are released vet checked, desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and scanned for ringworm and have been profiled. All animals are assessed prior to adoption. If a Pets Haven staff member does not think an adoption is suitable, the adoption will not proceed. In the adoption process the right environment for our animals is one of our main concerns. Our animals have already gone through enough pain and uncertainty. They also take in unwell animals and provide the required veterinary treatment and after care. Animals that are unwell due to no fault of their own do get better and deserve loving homes. Some animal shelters humanely euthanise animals that are not adopted within a set period of time, usually after an eight day period. Pets Haven has a ‘no time limit policy’ where we hold onto our animals or foster them until they are adopted.
