We have between 15-20 dogs onsite with several more in foster care. We also have between 20-30 cats that roam freely about in our dedicated cat room.
The Sanctuary rescues local animals in the Lehigh Valley and we also partner with both regional and out of state shelters who are over-crowded and at risk of euthanizing their animals. We are a community resource and can offer assistance for surrendered pets under special circumstances such as military deployment.
We adhere to a No-Kill animal welfare approach which means no animal is ever killed to make room for new arrivals. In very rare cases, if animals are suffering and are too sick to heal or too vicious to be rehabilitated, they are humanely euthanized. Both of these situations are extremely rare occurrences.
The Sanctuary at Haafsville is proud to sponsor a Humane Police Officer in the municipalities with which we contract for animal control. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to report possible neglect or cruelty cases. The municipalities that we provide animal control for are: Alburtis, Catasaqua. Coplay, Emmaus, Hanover (Lehigh County), Heidelberg, Lower Macungie, Lower Milford, Lowhill, Lynn, North Whitehall, South Whitehall, Upper Macungie, Washington and Weisenberg. If you live outside these municipalities you would need to contact Animal Control if you live in Allentown, and the Lehigh County Humane Society or PSPCA if you live in any other municipality to report a cruelty case.
