Back to Success Stories


Elina (now Margot) arrived at Animal Haven all the way from Saudia Arabia, where she’d been rescued from the streets.

Missing her front left leg and suffering from a hernia, we can only imagine what her life had been like before. But Elina’s affectionate, happy spirit shined through and she was adopted in no time!


“Margot is doing very well! She has settled in amazingly and is already such a wonderful part of my life. She has a great personality and is very vocal. She loves to play with her toys (especially wand toys, catnip mice, and her tube) as well as jump into any available cardboard box. She doesn’t jump up onto much, but it seems like she is growing in confidence with that every day. She also loves to watch the birds outside and will always give them a good chatter! Margot is now living the life she has always deserved and I’m so happy I can give her a comfortable place to call home after the long journey she’s been on.”
