Welcome to Pets Haven Foundation

Thank you for visiting Pets Haven Foundation.

Pets Haven is not your normal every day animal shelter. We are a Pro-Life facility, we do not believe in euthanising healthy animals for economic reasons or to simply make room.

Our emphasis relates to helping both human beings and our orphaned animals. We strongly believe in respecting both ‘human and fur’.

Our aim is to responsibly rehouse companion pets back into our community, where they belong.

We aim to open our Community Veterinary Clinic within the coming months.
