Heath’s Haven Rescue & Sanctuary is a home-based special needs rescue and sanctuary for dogs with neurological issues, spinal injuries, paralysis, and mobility issues. Heath’s Haven takes in dogs that are at risk of euthanasia in shelters as well as private parties. Each dog is given access to a specialist and provided with any recommended diagnostics (MRI, spinal taps, X-Rays, blood work, etc.) and surgical treatment. The dogs are then rehabilitated with an individualized program of hydrotherapy, acupuncture, and/or physical therapy. Once the dog is physically stable and cleared by their specialist, the are provided with the opportunity to find their forever family, no matter how long it takes.

The dogs rescued by Heath’s Haven are never transferred to other rescues and they are never euthanized unless their quality of life is poor or euthanasia is medically necessary. Heath’s Haven takes pride in being committed to their special needs dogs from the moment they arrive at the rescue, until the moment they arrive in their forever homes. It is well known and understood that finding the perfect home for a special needs dog can take time, so the dogs are safe until that day arrives.

Dogs that are severely medically challenged and dogs requiring hospice care, live out the rest of their years as a sanctuary resident with dignity and love.

A great big thanks to Alicia Marie Photography and The Puryears for their talent, time, and dedication to Heath's Haven. Here you can see how the dogs at Heath’s Haven love getting into their wheel chairs and zooming around. They don’t know that they are different from any other dog!

A special thank you to Capital Cities for allowing us to use the song "Safe And Sound."
