Urban Underdog

Our new space enables us to go above and beyond to enhance the lives of our shelter dogs more than ever before.

Your support will Make a Dog's Day!

Last year, our wonderful supporters helped us launch Camp Underdog! While nothing can compare to seeing all of our Underdogs unwind out of the city, we couldn't help but wonder how we could incorporate the essence of Camp Underdog into their day-to-day lives.

This year, we are excited to share some incredible news with you: we are expanding our program to create "Urban Underdog!" Our goal with this initiative is to enhance the lives of our shelter dogs even further by providing them with more frequent training and enrichment opportunities, more space to run and play, and increased time away from their kennels on a day-to-day basis. 

Animal Haven now has a dedicated space directly above the shelter, away from the noises, smells, and distractions that can typically hinder a dog's ability to truly relax in a shelter environment. Our dogs LOVE it and they have the opportunity to really let loose and decompress in a space only a stone's throw away from the shelter below.

A generous donor is helping kickstart our new program with a $10,000 MATCH if we can raise it by this Sunday!

This Sunday is National Make A Dog's Day, a day dedicated to celebrating and improving the lives of dogs in need. We invite you to be a part of our mission to make a lasting difference in the lives of shelter dogs by supporting the launch of our Urban Underdog program. Your contribution will directly translate into happier, healthier dogs and more successful adoptions.

You can truly make a dog's day.

Go above and beyond and sponsor one of our amazing Underdogs with a dedicated training and enrichment package. Just name them in your comment during the check-out process.
