Paradise Garden Animal Haven, named after Sarah Paradisegarten Zemel, officially opened its doors on July 1, 2004. Our mission is to provide humane education programs, in which spay/neuter is emphasized, to conduct outreach programs for seniors who would benefit from a companion animal, to promote TNR programs for feral cats, to facilitate low-cost spay/neuter and to offer adoption services for cats and dogs.
The haven is located on a thirty five acre farm, in Steuben County, not far from Corning. The renovated, heated and secure barn is now home to the adoptable cats, who are free to roam in their spacious and sunny habitats. At PGAH, Pets Get a Home until we find their forever home.
We have 4-6 low-cost spay/neuter clinics for dogs and cats every month. We welcome area residents to contact us for information about this valuable program. This program is made possible through the generous cooperation of Shelter Outreach Services and Chemung County SPCA.
We ask for your financial assistance to keep these programs funded. Besides the expense of these programs, each week we need 300 pounds of wood pellet litter, as well as paper towels, rubber gloves, bleach, cotton swabs, plastic garbage bags, and bedding, just to name a few items. All donations of goods, services and funds are tax-deductible. Please help in any way you feel comfortable, but please help!
There are many areas in which to volunteer. If you love animals and want to make a difference, please contact us to learn more about the opportunities to help at PGAH.
If you are not able to adopt a pet, please consider sponsoring one of our cats or kittens. For a contribution of $10 per month you can support the pet of your choice. We will provide you with monthly email updates, complete with photos, on your pet's progress towards adoption.
