All the dogs in the shelter are available for meet and greets during our open hours (please see our hours of operation).
An adoption app must be filled out prior to adoption.
We have copies on our site. You can fill it out and attach and send it to the form on our contact us page. (lately we have not been receiving forms with applications attached. We have contacted our service provider to see if we can have this resolved but if you do not hear back from us in a day or two please contact us again to confirm we received your application. Our email is email@example.com)
You may also come down to the shelter to fill out an application.
Once you have found a match that you would like to adopt you can schedule a home visit with us. At this point we will also sign our final adoption contract.
You can visit our site for a copy of our final adoption form to see our contract and policies.
After the home visit is complete and form signed you new family member with be able to go home with you.
If you are from out of town we can make arrangements to travel for a home visit or do a virtual home visit via pictures or skype.
We offer a 2 week trail period. During which time if the dog does not work with your family for whatever reason you may bring im/her back and try a dog that may be more suited. If we do not have a dog that suits your family you may wait until we do but there will be no monetary refund of the adoption fee.
Adopt a Paw Pet Haven is a non-profit pet shelter. We are mainly a dog shelter but we have taken in almost any type of pet over the last few years. If we cannot take a pet in then we can refer you to someone who can! We started Adopt a Paw Pet Haven about 2 years ago and received our non-profit status in July of 2011. We have rehomed many animals to great new families as well as many have become permanent additions of our family! We work hard to make sure all of our adoptables are social with kids and other animals and will make great new family additions. We love the animals and that why we do what we do. We cannot keep every pet that comes through our doors but we enjoy the time we spend with them.
Paws Pet Haven's main focus is to work with and provide relief for other over flowing shelters, especially many of the high kill shelters in California. We
work with many of the bully breeds that people seem to be so fearful of. They
are really wonderful dogs which is why the shelters spend so much money sending
them to rescues instead of euthanizing them. Many people ask why we spend so much time, effort, and finances bringing these dogs up here. In the US many families are loosing their homes and so dogs and puppies (that we would never see in a Canadian shelter) come in by the hundreds. Perfectly good family dogs with no place to go. Most dogs are only given a few days to a few weeks to be adopted before they are put down. There are just way more dogs then there are people to help them. Hundreds are put down each week due to lack of space. We have our dogs temperament tested and do our best to select the most family orientated and adoptable dogs possible and bring them to Canada to find a new life. Although we are based in Saskatoon, SK we work with fosters and adopters all over Canada.
Currently we dogs are available to meet by appointment.
Please contact us of you would like to come down! :)
