HAVA's Mission and Philosophy

Mission Statement

HAVA provides a no-kill shelter for animals in need, whether homeless, abandoned, or abused, until a permanent, caring home can be found. HAVA also strives to provide resources and education to our community to support all local animal life.


A shelter is a safe haven -- not the last stop before death

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

We aim to embrace individual uniqueness and foster communities of inclusion that support both the broad and specific diversity initiatives of our organization.
