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!
Hello, hello, hello! My name is Chloe and I LOVE people. I'm two years old; my only goal in life is to love and be loved. I'm embarrassed to admit, I was brought in as a stray, no family, no friends, and an incident I've never fully explained to the lovely people at Stray Haven left me with nerve damage to my lower spine. So, I walk sort of funny and sometimes I don't make it to the litter box in time. I'm really, really trying to work with the staff and find ways to adapt, but it's hard. It's really hard to have all this 2 year old energy and to struggle so hard to get around. Please, if you can be patient with me, if you're willing to help me, ask to meet me, to foster me, to adopt me; I'm really lonely.
Hi! My name is Dane and I'm a big guy! I am about 1 year old and full of energy. I was found as a stray and have been assimilating to life in the shelter. It's been a little challenge staying cooped up for much of the day. When the staff take me out for some exercise, I just can't contain myself! They work with me to check my energy and to keep me occupied. My favorite thing to do after I stretch my legs is to get pet. I loooooove to jump up on the platform in the yard and having the staff scratch my big noggin. I'm a very lovable guy. I just love people! I must go to a home with experienced high energy dog owners because I do have some undesirable behaviors, like jumping and mouthing as well as some separation anxiety. I really just love spending all of my time with the people, and I can be a very busy guy, so I would love to go to a home with very ACTIVE, ADULTS! I have seen some cats in my stay here, and boy oh boy do they look like a lot of fun to chase, anything under 60lbs is likely to be trampled! The staff say that I can't go to a home with kitty friends because I pay too much attention to them. If you'd like to meet me, come on down to Stray Haven and ask for the big guy: Dane. See you soon!
