WHO WE ARE
Mountain Haven Animal Rescue and Support Services, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to creating a new leash on life for animals in need and at risk.
At Mountain Haven Animal Rescue, we just love animals. It is our goal to continually provide the best care and opportunity for animals to have a successful second chance at the life they so justly deserve. If you are considering adopting your new best friend, whether it be furry, feathered or scaled, check and see who we have ready for adoption.
ADOPTIONS - EXOTICS - WILDLIFE REHAB - PET FOOD PANTRY
Mountain Haven Animal Rescue is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before. In addition to our dog rescue program, we are one of the few rescues that handle exotics and also receive numerous wildlife rehab calls. Our very first initiative was the Mountain Haven Pet Food Pantry which is still going strong to assist those facing financial hardship so they may feed their beloved pets.
When we rescue animals and ready them for adoption, they receive medical care and treatment as needed, get pre-spoiled and learn what love and trust is all about. Whether a senior pet, one with special needs or a puppy, each animal we are blessed to share time with gets all he or she needs for the wonderful life they deserve. We pride ourselves on the care we give them and the care we take in finding them the perfect new home. Adoption at Mountain Haven takes on a whole new meaning. You adopt your new family member, and we add you to our Mountain Haven family. The relationship continues through social media, texts, photos and more. We value you as an integral part of the work we do. Together we all do great things.
Bet you didn't know that Mountain Haven is one of the few rescues that takes in exotics too! From birds to tortoises, lizards and dragons to ferrets, sugar gliders and chinchillas...never a dull moment for our crew.
PET FOOD PANTRY
Our very first initiative was the Mountain Haven Pet Food Pantry and we are still helping those in our communities to feed their pets during difficult times. With the onset of Covid19 came an abundance of need for pet food. With the help of kind hearted folks in our community, we have been able to serve many in this difficult time. Our community is strong, and is an integral part of Mountain Haven. The compassion of our team, our neighbors, and business colleagues keeps us going, restores our faith in humanity when we see difficult cases, and fills our hearts so we can continue to push forward and serve.
Wildlife rehab is a hard initiative. Never funded but always needed, wild life rehabilitator's are licensed by the State but beyond the training, the responsibility falls completely on the rehab professional. Mountain Haven has no funding specifically for wildlife rehab, however if supportive care is required to get injured wildlife back to it's normal state of health for survival, we will do what we can. Not all licensed rehabbers can take all species of wildlife, our rehabber is federally licensed for birds of prey. We do however assist wherever possible and coordinate with other rehabbers to get wildlife the care they need. Whether it's providing fluids and warmth until another rehabber can pick up or referring directly to them, it takes a dedicated group of special folks to do this work, and help to preserve our native wildlife.
