What is The Haven Animal Care Shelter?
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.
Goals of the Haven include:
Ø Saving the lives of helpless animals…one life at a time.
Ø Educating people to be responsible pet owners…one person at a time.
Ø Improving the lives of children through our pet therapy program…one child at a time.
Ø Changing the world to a kinder and more peaceful place…one day at a time.
