Stray Haven has been proudly serving Tioga County, NY and the Greater Valley, PA for more than 50 years! Thanks, in no small part, to our amazing volunteers and dedicated staff. Through generous donations we are able to provide educational programs and short-term residential care for adoptable animals all to ensure the protection of animals in our area. We believe strongly in our no-kill policy which means fundraising relentlessly to cover medical and hygiene costs for our animals as we seek to pair them with their perfect home.
Stray Haven is a Humane Society dedicated to ensuring the protection of animals through education and service.
Stray Haven was established in 1967 by Elaine Forkan, the founder. Elaine began Stray Haven Humane Society as a solution to care for stray and abandoned animals in the community. In the beginning, our organization was a strictly volunteer operated non-profit using an old smokehouse called, O’Brien’s. We were established as a 501c3 on June 1, 1971 and moved to our current location at 194 Shepard Road in Waverly, NY 14892. As of 2011, we transitioned, proudly, to becoming a no-kill shelter.
Hi there, my name is Lucky. I am an adorable female calico. I was in a shelter in Louisiana when Stray Haven took me and a bunch of my buddies in to help us find our forever homes. I am kind of a shy kitty and I really don’t enjoy loud noises or being picked up so I would be best in a home with none or older children. I often hide underneath things so a home that has good hidey holes would be a dream. I do love hanging out in the cat trees and window watching to pass the time. I am a very sweet girl, just very nervous around new people. I am very explorative so I can’t wait to find a family with a home that I can roam to my hearts desire. If you would like to meet me, just come down to Stray Haven and get to know me!
Hey there! My name is Squeaks, I'm a two-year-old Pit mix. I was brought to the shelter as a stray by dog control. I'm a very sweet girl who has a ton of energy! As a birthday present for their son who loves dogs, a nice family sponsored my adoption fee! All you need is an approved application and to let me love you forever. I need a home with people who have a lot of time to play and get my energy out. I am dog selective and prefer not to be around cats. I would do best in a home with kids older than 12 because of my energy. I love to be outside, going on walks, playing fetch, or just running around being goofy! Stop down to Stray Haven to see me! I look forward to meeting you!
Get ready for a Mardi Gras extravaganza that is all about supporting Stray Haven. One of the highlights of the night will be a jambalaya tasting where local restaurants will have the chance to battle it out to win the title of "Best Jambalaya in Tioga County". There will be live music and a cash bar available to keep the good times flowing.
This is a family-friendly event to be enjoyed by all!
