Pets Haven Foundation - Melbourne, VIC
Pets Haven Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation (non-government funded) which re-homes orphan felines and canines who would otherwise have no future. Our highest value is "pro-life". We rescue from death row pounds, cruelty cases, puppy farms and the community. We endeavour to responsibly rehouse these orphans back into the community in order to give them a second chance at life.
Every case is unique and each animal is managed according to their particular circumstances and current condition. Animals that do not require rehabilitation are kept at the shelter whilst awaiting their forever home, whilst those in need of medical attention are placed into approved foster homes with all medical provisions paid for by Pets Haven. When the animal has recovered and is in good health, it will then be placed up for adoption.
Animals that enter Pets Haven have often been mistreated, are malnourished, abused or neglected and regularly require extensive medical treatment, which is always provided to ensure a full recovery. Our foster carers help immensely in that they provide a wonderful, safe and loving home environment so that the rehabilitation process can be successful.
Each and every animal that comes through Pets Haven is vet checked, desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and given flea treatment. Furthermore, each animal is temperament tested prior to its arrival at the shelter. Our dedicated staff and volunteers spend time getting to know them so that they can help prospective adopters make an informed decision as to whether that particular animal would be suitable for them. If a Pets Haven professional does not think an adoption is appropriate, it will not proceed. Ensuring that the animal will be rehomed into a suitable environment, lifestyle and family is our greatest concern. These animals have already experienced enough pain and uncertainty and thus require a home that will last a lifetime.
