Adopt a Little Love

Safe Harbor is a charitable nonprofit organization funded solely through private donations and dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals. We are committed to a "No Kill" policy; pets that come into our care will receive humane treatment for as long as they need our protection. Our goal is to find a safe and loving home for each animal in our care, and we will pursue vigorous Adopt-a-Pet campaigns to further that end. No Safe Harbor animal will ever be euthanized unless it is medically necessary to put an end to the animal's suffering.

The key to successful adoptions lies in carefully matching the personality traits of each animal to the preferences and lifestyle of the prospective home. This is accomplished through the use of volunteer "foster" homes or a "free-roam" environment (as opposed to steel cages in a kennel setting).

Once an animal comes into our care, it is placed into isolation and its medical needs are evaluated. Basic shots are administered. Veterinary care is sought when warranted. Unaltered animals of the appropriate age are taken to the vet for spay or neuter. They are then placed in our free-roam facility or in a foster home. Prior to an adoption, foster parents or Sanctuary volunteers do their best to accurately match each prospective owner with the best possible pet.
