Frequently Asked Questions

1.) How many animals live at The Sanctuary?

We have between 15-20 dogs onsite with several more in foster care.  We also have between 65-75 cats, many of whom roam freely about in our dedicated cat building. 

2.) Where do your animals come from?

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.  

3.) What is a "no-kill" shelter?

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.  

4.) How do I report neglect? 

The Sanctuary at Haafsville is proud to sponsor a Humane Police Officer in the municipalities with which we contract for animal control.  Please email animalcruelty@thesanctuarypa.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, Upper Milford, 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.

Libby
NOW AVAILABLE AT PETCO 
This poor girl was found abandoned in her home. Libby was left with no food, water or litter during a recent heatwave. 
Libby is incredibly friendly, interactive and loving. She practically jumps into your arms when you open her cage. Libby is so happy to be getting the attention she needs. She loves people and will head butt you for pets and head scratches . Libby will actually hug you back. She does NOT like dogs and doesn’t seem to care for other cats either. Libby is a beautiful girl who will be an excellent companion.
Libby is healthy, spayed, vaccinated, negative for felv/fiv and litter trained. We are currently featuring Libby at Petco Lower Nazareth (3895 Dryland Way, Easton). Direct adoption inquiries to Amanda 610-401-7523 or email us at
