Our Mission is to Change Their World,
One Rescue at a Tim


S.A.F.E. (Spay/Neuter, Adoption, Foster and Education) Animal Haven is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal rescue group located in Matthews, North Carolina. Our purpose is to serve as a community resource for information about companion animals and their care, the importance of spay/neuter to reduce the shelter population and to provide rescue for homeless dogs and place them in foster homes where they will be provided the love and care they need to become happy, healthy, adoptable pets.
