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

In our first 7 years, we've saved over 6000 animals and placed them in loving "furever" homes. In 2017, we placed over 1400 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 15 Lehigh 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.  As well, we provide neuter/spay for feral cats.

Update: The Mutt Hutt is coming along quickly!

We still need critical funds to finish the inside and are looking for donors or people who would like to hold a fundraiser, and sponsors of the 16 sensational indoor/outdoor dog runs. Please contact us if you can help our dogs have their very own Mutt Hutt to reside in while they wait for their furever homes.

Help us in our mission to create a safe haven for animals adopting an animal,  becoming a Volunteer or by providing critical donations.



There are many ways you can help, even if you cannot adopt.
