Adopted Dog Monday!

Gulliver's new family met him while he was on a run around Lake Harriet with Lauren, a staff member of Pampered Pooch Playground, where Gulliver was a foster dog.  They had been thinking of getting a new dog after losing their senior Chocolate Lab Harvey several months ago, but weren't thinking that they would do it just yet.    After spending time with this sweet year old Black Lab from Sioux City Animal Control, the family decided that now was the right time, after all.   The older daughter in the family calls him Gull-lover-er.    He is a loving boy and while he won't replace Harvey, he and his family will make lots of good new memories together.

Johnson the English Setter went home last week after being with us for several months. Thanks to Sharon and Barbara for transitioning from respite foster care to full-time foster care for this beautiful dog.  (They have since returned to respite fostering.)  Johnson had a bit of a tough time when he came to Pet Haven.  He was nervous about the transition from his former home to his foster home but Sharon and Barbara were so patient and persistent that he eventually settled down and find his forever home.

If you would like to feel the satisfaction of loving a good dog until he or she finds a forever home, won't you consider fostering for Pet Haven?  For more information, email us at
