The Sanctuary at Haafsville is a safe haven for homeless cats and dogs.  

In our first 12 years, we've saved over 12,000 animals and placed them in loving "furever" homes! In 2021, we placed almost 1,200 animals.  We adhere to a No-Kill animal welfare philosophy which means we do not euthanize animals to create space.  We partner with shelters that are overcrowded, rescue dogs and cats from natural disasters, accept dogs and cats from owners who need to relinquish them, and work to place animals into loving homes.  


Thank you so much to our supporters who allow our mission to grow!!

Adoption Spotlight



Crumb was adopted through the Sanctuary at Haafsville as a kitten. She was recently returned through no fault of her own. She is understandably scared and confused. With TLC from the shelter volunteers, she is coming out of her shell. Crumb is very receptive to petting and head scratches from the volunteers. She tends to keep to herself and hunker down in a high place in the free roaming room. She will thrive in a quiet and low activity home. Crumb will need to trust that she will never be abandoned again. Crumb’s adopter will need to be patient and provide the understanding, time and love she needs to acclimate to a new home.

Crumb is 2 years old, healthy, spayed, vaccinated, negative for FeLV/FIV, litter trained and microchipped.
