The Process


We are very careful in considering our applications. It is very important to us that we do everything we can to be sure our rescue’s are going to good, safe, and forever homes! If you are approved for adoption, it is possible to have your new dog home in a week – we do not do same day adoption.

If you know which dog you would like to adopt, great! Fill out the application and tell us who you want to provide a loving home for.

If you don’t know, please search through our available pups, or find us at our next adoption event and meet all the pups in person!

Here are the important things we look for on an application:

→ Vet Reference: Annual and up-to-date vet care for current and past dogs.

→ Fenced in yard: For those who live in a home, we require a fenced in yard. The type of fence may differ depending upon the dog!

The Adoption Fee

The adoption fee covers the vetting of our rescues. This includes spay/neuter, the first three rounds of their puppy shots, and microchipping. For most puppies, this is the veterinary care for the first 6 months of their life. We start our dogs on heartworm preventative, as well as flea and tick preventative. In our adult rescues, this covers any medical attention they may need.

How this works:  You are required to take your new puppy to our vet, Woodland West Animal Hospital up until their spay/neuter. After completing their shots and spay/neuter, you are then allowed to take your new rescue to your personal vet! *If you are adopting an adult, they should be fully vetted by adoption day and may not require further vetting through Puppy Haven.

Become a foster!


Do you have room in your home for some extra love? Consider being a foster! When you foster one our rescues, you are preparing them for their forever happiness! We supply our foster families with a crate or pen, potty training pads, toys, and food. We only ask that you treat our dogs as if they were one of your own!

Foster families play a very important part in the success of a rescue. We are always in need of someone to love on our dogs until they can find someone to do it forever! If you have room in your home, please consider fostering with Puppy Haven.

Become a Volunteer!


We are always in need of volunteers! This could mean working one-on-one with the dogs, aiding in events, or more behind-the-scenes work.

And of course, donate

A little help goes a long way. All donations cover the basic costs for our pups. Veterinary care, food, toys, and beds.
