We follow a no-kill model. We DO NOT euthanize healthy animals, and we routinely provide medical care and treatment for sick and injured animals like a home would do. We routinely treat a variety of illnesses and injuries for as many animals as possible additionally, there is not set length of stay at our shelter.
Sometimes, just like a home and all legitimate no-kill shelters, we see animals who cannot be rehabilitated. We follow veterinary guidance in determining if an animal is non-habitable and when euthanasia is recommended. This includes animals who are behaviorally unhealthy and too dangerous for our staff and volunteers to care for and too dangerous to place in our community.
Occasionally, like a home, we have to make the difficult decision to euthanize because treatment options for a significantly sick or injured animal may exceed the immediate resources needed to provide care for an animal at a given time. While rare, this may occur when we are faced with a larger number of animals in need of significant medical care all at once and/or when serious communicable diseases are involved which could jeopardize the healthy of our entire shelter population.
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!
