Making Provisions for Your Pets

AHS’s Safe Haven Program

Thank you for your interest in Associated Humane Societies Safe Haven program. Through this program, you can leave your companion animal to us through your estate plans, and we will find a loving home for your companion. When your pet arrives, they will temporarily stay at Kitty City or Animal Haven (for dogs). AHS believes that all animals deserve a loving family and routine of a real home, therefore all animals in this program will be made available for adoption. We do hope that if you require our Safe Haven program, that you will remember Associated Humane Societies in your estate plans.
