Where do they come from?

One common question that we get is "where do your dogs come from?" Pet Haven takes in dogs from a wide variety of sources.
Sophie is a Schnauzer who came to us from a rural shelter in southern Minnesota in 2008.
She is available for adoption.

In 2008, we took 172 dogs into our foster program:
  • 78 dogs came from animal control facilities, rural shelters and smaller rescue groups
  • 68 dogs were owner surrenders

  • 14 dogs came from private citizens/good samaritans
  • 12 dogs were Pet Haven returns (once a Pet Haven dog, always a Pet Haven dog)
