What is the Haven?
The Haven Animal Care Shelter is a non-profit foundation,
established in 1977 by Dr. Brenda and Joe Wilbanks.
The Haven is a no-kill, non-profit animal sanctuary,
and is generally home to over 100 animals, primarily dogs and cats.
The Haven occupies a seven-acre property near Lubbock, TX.
In addition to special needs animals such as those with chronic illnesses and the elderly,
the Haven shelters a wide variety of adoptable dogs and cats who are in need of good, loving homes.
We encourage spay and neuter of household pets,
provide educational programs for schools and community groups,
and offer pet therapy programs to the community.
ØSaving the lives of helpless animals…one life at a time.
ØEducating people to be responsible pet owners…one person at a time.
ØImproving the lives of children through our pet therapy program…one child at a time.
ØChanging the world to a kinder and more peaceful place…one day at a time.
Requests for Placing Animals
We are currently overwhelmed by requests to take animals
and are accepting them as we have space and resources available.
The most efficient way to reach us is to email all of your information to firstname.lastname@example.org
including a description of the animal, why you need to place the animal, and a picture if possible.
You will be placed on a wait list
(which is very long at this time since requests are at an all time high),
and will be notified if space becomes available.
We are also trying to help in other ways through our Haven Hope for Animals program.
Please look for information regarding this program
on our website at www.havenacs.org
to see if you can be helped through this fund.
We have provided help with emergency vet care on a case by case basis,
with part of the spay/neuter cost, and with other special needs.

Visiting the Haven
Welcome to the Haven! Please enter through the second gate and drive down Whitney’s Way to Sanctuary Circle.
You may park around the circle drive (please do not block the driveway at the house!) or along the sides of Whitney’s Way.
Please sign in at the blue metal stand (open drawer for sign in sheet) and enter the shelter.
Walk down Judge Ladd’s Lane and you will see the Visitor’s Center on your right.
Please check in there and wait for staff or a volunteer to help you.
Thank you for visiting the Haven. We have many wonderful animals waiting to see you.
They have been vetted and nursed back to
health and are ready to find their forever homes.
Two have been lucky
enough to find their homes, but the other seven are anxiously waiting!
They are bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and full of joy.
They would be the
perfect companion for anyone to come home to.
Come to the Haven to see them in person! We promise you won’t be disappointed!
Our Dearest Maxx
It takes cooperation and love for animals to make magic happen in the world of animal welfare. Our handsome Maxx flew out of Lubbock last weekend on a private plane through Pilots N Paws. He was taken straight to a foster home in Oklahoma City. Deb D. Young of Lubbock picked Maxx up from the Haven and transported him to the airport. We appreciate her so much. We would also like to thank Wire Fox Terrier Rescue Midwest, especially to Maribeth Knierem of Chicago and Julie Covey of Austin. A foster home was waiting for Maxx as soon as he got off the plane. His foster mother, Katherine Garrison, has already called to report that Maxx is doing well and is being very well taken care of and loved. All of us at the Haven want to thank the people involved in transporting Maxx in such a professional and organized manner. We love Maxx and know that great things await him!

Love, Blessings, and Gratitude
The Haven would like to sincerely thank everyone who donated to our animals this year.
Our animals are enjoying their new beds, all of their food, toys, and other donated items.
Donated supplies have helped us keep the sanctuary functioning (especially in the frigid temperatures).
Gift cards and monetary donations have allowed us to rescue even more animals than before.
We are currently remodeling to make more room for puppies.
We appreciate all of you for your donations, your kind words,and for joining us in our love for animals.
