HUSKY HAVEN, Inc. is an non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, made up of individual volunteers, and dedicated to helping Siberian Huskies. We are NOT a shelter or a kennel facility. Most dogs are fostered in private homes while awaiting adoption. The majority of our rescue costs are paid by HUSKY HAVEN adoption fees and donations from the public. Needless to say, your donations and personal support are always appreciated and greatly needed.
When contacting HUSKY HAVEN Inc., please remember that our volunteers may work during the day or have other personal obligations. We ask that you make allowances for this and be patient if we are not immediately available to take your call. Your phone calls and emails are important to us and will be answered as soon as possible. HUSKY HAVEN, Inc. volunteers may return long distance phone calls using collect phone charges.
HUSKY HAVEN, Inc. will help you with behavior and training information that allows you to keep your dog as a member of the family. Sometimes the most difficult seeming problems have very simple solutions! Please feel free to contact us for any breed advice.
If you wish to re-home your dog and your dog came from a responsible AKC breeder... please contact them first. Responsible breeders will help owners with dog problems and, if necessary, either help you re-home your dog or agree to take back your dog. The breeder's name is listed on your dog's registration papers and on the sales contract. If your registered dog came from a pet store, it did NOT come from a responsible breeder and they will not help you.
If you are in a big hurry to get rid of your personal pet and consider a shelter, you should also consider this: Shelter statistics show 90-95% of ALL dogs given to shelters will die there, many without a chance for public adoption. If your dog has any noticeable health, behavior, training, or temperament problems... it can be his death sentence in a shelter. Most shelters have limited resources and little space available for the overwhelming numbers of new dogs they receive. Each new dog means another will die to make a space available. Pets turned over by their owners can be euthanized immediately... there is NO legal waiting period as with strays.
HUSKY HAVEN, Inc. does not accept owner turn-ins. Rescue is NOT a dumping ground for owners to quickly escape their responsibility, nor a lazy solution to simple dog problems. Breed rescue is the last resource for many lost, abandoned, neglected, or sometimes abused dogs. These are the dogs in the shelters with little true hope and no one left to help them, and they must take first priority.
Rescue will always work to help owners who have problem situations. Our goal is a good home, whether that is with the current owner or a new family. We are here for the dogs that need help, and that is always our first and final priority!
