Fundraising & Community Events

Stray Haven relies on the generous donations of our supporters and community members to keep our doors open. We also work to reach out to our community fostering humane education (proper care and housing of pets and livestock), promoting pet adoption and the spaying/neutering of your pets. Stray Haven offers many services, including low-cost vet services for our community members in need and works to reunite lost pets with their families and finding new forever homes for dogs, cats and other animals through our adoption programs. You can support these programs in many ways!

  • Participation in Events
