pet haven :: november rescue of the month

Whoa, it’s November! It’s time again to gear up for the Pet Haven Fall Benefit, and to coincide with that, we’re happy to feature Pet Haven as the November Rescue of the Month! Pet Haven was the first rescue I volunteered with when I made the transition from kids to pets. I loved my time with them and am forever grateful for the doors they opened for my business. The Fall Benefit is an annual fundraiser event with dinner, a silent auction, local celebrities and adoptable dogs and cats! If you’re interested in attending, there’s still a few tickets available.

Pet Haven Inc. of Minnesota’s vision is to be a rewarding place to volunteer, to find a quality home for each animal, to encourage a community of responsible companion animal guardians, to eliminate the community’s need to euthanize dogs and cats as a means of population control, and to encourage a society where they become more valued. As a founding member of the Minnesota Partnership for Animal Welfare (MnPAW) coalition, they are proud to work together with eight other animal welfare groups across Minnesota to ensure a home for every healthy and treatable companion animal in the state. MnPAW believes that by joining forces to use its ideas, expertise and resources in a coordinated way it can make a greater impact on reducing euthanasia of adoptable animals.

Our first feature is Bella, a 3 year old Rat Terrier who is full of spunky energy! She’s doing great with training, and is a smart girl who’s quick to learn. And holy cow can she jump!

And this handsome boy is Jambalaya, or “Jumbo” for short. He’s BIG and still needs to lose some poundage…. he’s at 17 pounds now, down from 22 (!) He loves everyone, including other cats and dogs, is easy-going and very playful. I like his bobcat-style ear tufts.

If you’d like to volunteer with Pet Haven and be a part of all the great things they’re doing, click here for more information. They’re always in need of more volunteers and foster families.
