Pet Haven is a foster-based rescue where animals live with foster families until they are placed in permanent homes. Foster families get to know the dogs and cats in their care and learn important information about the animals. For example, the foster family will know if the dog or cat is good with other animals or children, and will have a good idea of what kind of training, attention, and special needs the pet may require. This makes our foster families great resources for potential adopters!
Every animal in Pet Haven’s adoption program is examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, treated for any known medical ailments, implanted with a microchip ID, and spayed or neutered. We also provide a 10-day health guarantee for each adopted animal. Within the first 10 days of adoption, if you or your vet discover a medical condition that existed prior to adoption, we’ll work with our vet partner to provide medical attention at no charge to you.
We receive many of our animals from shelters, animal control facilities, indian Reservations, and owner surrenders.
While we work hard to ensure great matches are made between animals and their adopters, we know that circumstances sometimes require people to make the difficult choice to return their pet. Pet Haven will work with adopters to welcome back any animal adopted from Pet Haven into our care if the need arises. Adopters are offered a 10-day “grace period” post-adoption and can return their pet if necessary. Previous adopters can learn more about the surrender process here.
We are committed to providing post-adoption services that include our health guarantee and behavior counseling. Therefore, an animal’s new home must be within reach of our volunteers and veterinary clinics. For this reason, Pet Haven limits its animal placements to locations within 60 miles of the Twin Cities.
Adoption fees vary depending on the age and breed of the animal. Every pet placed through Pet Haven is spayed or neutered, is up-to-date on vaccinations, has a microchip ID, and has been examined by a veterinarian to make sure it is healthy at the time of adoption. Cat adoption fees range from $130-$150. Dog adoption fees range from $220 for a senior/special needs dog, $400 for an adult dog, and $450 for a puppy.
