Who We Are

Paradise Garden Animal Haven, named after Sarah Paradisegarten Zemel, officially opened its doors on July 1, 2004. Our mission is to provide humane education programs, in which spay/neuter is emphasized; to conduct outreach programs for seniors who would benefit from a companion animal; to promote TNR programs for feral cats; to facilitate low-cost spay/neuter; and to offer adoption services for cats and dogs.

The haven is located on a thirty-five acre farm in Steuben County, not far from Corning. The renovated, heated, and secure barn is now home to the adoptable cats, who are free to roam in their spacious and sunny habitats. At PGAH, Pets Get a Home until we find their forever home.

We have four to six low-cost spay/neuter clinics for dogs and cats every month. We welcome area residents to contact us for information about this valuable program. This program is made possible through the generous cooperation of Shelter Outreach Services and Chemung County SPCA.

If you are able to donate, we ask for your financial assistance to keep these programs funded. Besides the expense of these programs, each week we need 300 pounds of wood pellet litter, as well as paper towels, rubber gloves, bleach, cotton swabs, plastic garbage bags, and bedding--just to name a few items. All donations of goods, services, and funds are tax-deductible. Please help in any way you feel comfortable, but please help!

There are many areas in which to volunteer. If you love animals and want to make a difference, please contact us to learn more about the opportunities to help at PGAH.

If you are not able to adopt a pet, please consider sponsoring one of our cats or kittens. For a contribution of $10 per month you can support the pet of your choice. We will provide you with monthly e-mail updates, including photos, about your pet's progress towards adoption.

Our Cats and Kittens

All of the kittens and cats in our care receive thorough veterinary care. All are tested for FeLV/FIV, treated for internal/external parasites, brought up to date on shots, and are spayed/neutered as soon as they reach the appropriate age. We provide our cats with stimulating habitats with large, sunny windows. Our felines are free to roam, find company with a feline or human friend, or have a cat nap in a cozy spot. We house each litter of kittens independently, until they have had appropriate veterinary care.

Dog Acting Up?

The cute behavior of puppies often turns all too quickly into the unacceptable behavior of an adolescent dog. Many dogs are surrendered to havens and pounds between the ages of six months to two years. Many behaviors can be easily corrected through the use of positive obedience training and humane behavior modification. If you are just about fed up and thinking that your relationship with your dog isn't going to work, think again. Once you've learned how to effectively communicate with your dog in a positive manner, you'll find your relationship enriched on many levels. Feel free to call to discuss your dog's behavior and to learn new ways to deal with old problems.
