Haven for Hope has a small kennel (10 outside dog kennels and a 10 cat cattery). The kennel is provided to those who need their animals the most to get back on their feet. These individuals care for their own animals while we provide the means for them to house, feed, and maintain their animal.
Haven also has an in house training program for Kennel Assistant for those interested in working with animals upon graduation from Haven. It is comprised of 40 hours of online training through Animal Care Technologies followed by 80 hours of hands on volunteering through local entities such as ACS, ADL, HS, boarding kennels, veterinarians, etc. Upon successful completion, they receive a certificate. Several individuals are currently employed in the animal care community due to the availabity of this program.
In addition, if we have a Service Animal on property and the owner is unable to care for the dog, such as a case where the individual is having surgery, we can house the animal and have in-house and outside volunteers care for the animal while the owner is incapacitated.
