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 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 2012, we transitioned, proudly, to becoming a no-kill shelter.
Stray Haven is a Humane Society dedicated to ensuring the protection of animals through education and service.
As a private organization, we rely on the public to continue our life saving work. Please consider donating today!
Hi there! My name is Lucy Lou, I'm quite the delightful 4 year old. Until I came to Stray Haven I didn't really spend much time with people or other animals; so I'll admit it, I'm terrible at meeting people. Either I feel very safe with you off the bat, or I start to get anxious. If I start to get anxious I have a hard time calming myself down, so yes, I've nipped at people and animals. I never used to have to meet anyone for anything and now new people are always trying to touch me and I just am not comfortable with strangers in my personal bubble. I really like to nap, to find a sunny spot and sprawl out, I swear I'm a really good girl, or I really try to be! But, this shelter life, it's just not the life for me. Please make an appointment to come meet me. I'd really love to end up in a home with just one or two adults, I need a quiet life. Please help me.
Hey, I'm Jane! I raised three strong boys; Jerry, Chad, and Kevin. Now that my sons have homes I'm ready to find a place to rest and get cozy myself. The shelter makes me very uncomfortable, I love being around other cats, dogs... well... dogs are loud. It takes me a little bit to get comfortable around new people, I don't mean to make such bad first impressions, but trying to meet new people everyday all day while dogs are barking and cats are running around. It's just so much to process. Please, please consider giving me a chance to be your cat. I really just want to know what it feels like to lay in a window and not be nervous about who's behind me. I really just want a safe place to rest.
