HUMANE HAPPENINGS - Week of January 9 2017

by Eliana Aubin

Eliana with one of our new rescues!
 It’s a very busy week at Desert Haven Animal Refuge, as
Sammy the very shy Golden Retriever, Pixie the lap-dog-want-to-be Chihuahua, Echo the fun-loving red-heeler-hound and the gorgeous black & white blue-eyed Eclipse became the newest residents of DogTown just a few days ago.  On Tuesday, it was so enjoyable for everyone to watch how quickly all the latest rescues had started to feel at home at Dog Town. Soon, their photos and information will be posted on our Desert Haven Petfinder page and our Facebook page, at

Betty' donation
Thank you, Betty, for making all the Desert Haven’s furry residents very happy this week.  We are grateful for your generous contribution of pet food and treats, and also for the very gently used Cat furniture that you thoughtfully included in your donation. Our kitties took possession of the cat furniture immediately after it was set-up in the Cat Patio inside the Cool Cat neighborhood.

This week’s wish list: a load of crusher fine to repair  the damage done to the driveway leading to the sanctuary parking lot and main building.  Construction material, especially wood, plywood, pieces of 2 by 4, etc. that we currently are collecting to take on several much needed projects that will enhance the lives of our little residents.   

Paws & Claws Thrift Shoppe is the major fundraising activity for our non-profit organization and Desert Haven, the no-kill sanctuary operating under its 501-c-3 non-profit umbrella. The non-profit resale store is now open from Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 AM to 5 PM, to better serve the community and the tourists. We need extra help at the store during business hours. Interested in donating a couple of hours a week to a good cause? Pick-up a volunteer information form at the store. We can use your help.
