Our Mission

The mission of Rescue Haven Foundation is to help dogs at risk by providing foster homes that will nurture their physical and emotional health, help locate the ideal forever homes for them while providing support and training to help assure that their stay in their new homes is permanent. In addition we focus on developing programs to promote pet adoption services and raise public awareness by providing community education of the issues surrounding animal rescue.  We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.


In recognition of our foundation growing in ways we never could have imagined, in 2017 we changed our name from The FernDog Rescue Foundation to Rescue Haven Foundation which perfectly encapsulates the life-saving work our volunteers are committed to day in and day out.

Most of our dogs are saved from inner city shelters and were at risk to be euthanized.
