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.

We want to remind everyone that even though we can't do as many adoption events in the summer due to the heat, we do have our Amazon wishlist for the summer. This list will be up all summer. and we will add to it as foster parents have needs. Please share the list with your friends. Thank you as always for your support!

We would love to pull more dogs to help the overloaded shelter make space and save lives. We have had to stop pulling due to lack of foster homes.
