Updated: In accordance with the CDC guidelines, and in response to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) to our local communities, The Sanctuary at Haafsville’s buildings continue to remain temporarily CLOSED for public walk-ins until further notice. This is for the safety of our volunteers and staff who care for our animals, as well as the safety for the public community. The Sanctuary’s top priority is the health and well-being of our shelter animals and the people who care for them. All adoptable animals can be viewed on the Adopt page and applications can be submitted online. Private appointments for a particular animal can be arranged outside of our buildings by calling our main number at 484-285-5445. All Volunteer Orientations, PAWS Program visits, and Group visits are postponed until further notice. The Sanctuary at Haafsville thanks you for your cooperation during this time. We thank EVERYONE IN OUR COMMUNITY for your continued support and wish you safe and well!

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

In our first 10 years, we've saved approximately 9000 animals and placed them in loving "furever" homes. In 2019, we placed almost 1300 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, we work with 16 Lehigh County and 1 Berks County municipalities to take in stray dogs and cats, 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.

Take a look at this slideshow that was originally created to show at the Lehigh Valley Phantoms game at the Chuck a Puck table!!  The students of Willow Lane Elementary chose to donate the money they raised at the Chuck a Puck table at the Lehigh Valley Phantoms game to the cats and dogs of the Sanctuary at Haafsville! Thank you!


This video was created by our very own volunteer, Loni Weller!!  Music was provided by musician Ryan Peters. Click on the picture below to play video.


NOTE: The adoption status of some animals in the slideshow may change as they find their forever homes!

Mutt Hut Grand Opening - Thank You!

In case you missed it, we held our Grand Opening on the Mutt Hut on June 9, 2018.  The dogs are settled into their new home and the cats could not be happier!  Our hours are the same (by appointment only or during adoption days), but we hope you will come visit our new facility to say hello (and maybe even leave one family member larger than you came).  Check out some photo's of this amazing milestone.  To all who donated or provided assistance, Thank You!

General Donations

   Adoption Spotlight

AJ is one of over 110 cats who were rescued from a home in April 2019. Like many of the others, AJ was very confused and scared when he came to the Sanctuary. In the 9 months since then, AJ has learned to trust the volunteers who care for him. AJ has learned that human kindness and affection are good things. He has come such a long way and deserves to live his life in a loving home rather than the shelter. AJ is gentle and gets along very well with other cats. He is a good boy and would thrive with caring, patient and loving people. 
AJ is 4 years old, handsome, healthy, neutered, vaccinated, negative for felv and litter trained. It was reported that AJ does have some night vision issues but it does not limit him. Please consider opening your heart and home to AJ.
