We will be very happy to arrange the introductions!! If you call and you get our voicemail, - just leave us a message, - we will call you back!

Who We Are

The Haven for Dogs, Inc. is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit, 501 (c) 3 organization, based in the Lexington, KY area, USA. We are dedicated primarily to "re-homing" abandoned and homeless dogs.

Our mission is to reduce companion animal homelessness by placing homeless dogs into loving and responsible homes, and by helping to maintain successful placement of dogs in those homes.

Adopting a friend

* An adoption fee of $90 is charged for each Haven dog.

* The adoption fee covers required spaying/neutering, current vaccinations, deworming, microchip identification, and general care of the animals (food, medication, vet care, etc.).

* Adoption fees do not cover each pet's expenses, but only partially helps to offset them.

* An interview with a Haven
volunteer is required to verify that the placement is appropriate. The Haven seeks the best possible homes for the animals in our care.

*Please note* that an interview with a Haven adoption counselor is required before our dogs can be placed. If you are interested in one of our dogs it would be great if you would give us a call so we can talk with you. If you are calling long distance (or local) and you get our voicemail, - just leave us a message, - we'll be happy to return your call! It helps if you will let us know a good time to call you back (daytime, evening, etc.) Remember, we will need to talk with you before you can adopt.

* An application/adoption contract must be completed and signed, and approved by a Haven volunteer for each adoption.

* If for any reason you become unable to care for the pet you adopt, the animal must be returned to The Haven.
