...transforming the rescue dog into a responsible family member

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The National Council on Pet Population Study indicates that 50% of dogs relinquished to shelters are due to behavioral issues. Most pet owners understand the importance of obedience training for a dog, but this is not enough to make a dog a good companion. The dog may still exhibit unwanted behaviors such as pulling on the leash, jumping on visitors, excessive barking and bolting out of open doors. ROAR's mission is to place each dog in a permanent, loving home where he becomes a responsible family member. To accomplish this goal, ROAR foster dogs are evaluated and behavior modification plans are put into place to ensure the dog will be a well-mannered companion. ROAR uses positive training methods. As part of the adoption process, each adopter will learn how to maintain and reinforce the training their new companion has learned. After adoption, ROAR is available for consultation and follow-up.

All ROAR adoptees are microchipped, spayed or neutered, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, issued 30-days of complimentary health insurance. Please check the profile of the dog you are interested in to see how far we have progressed in training. Depending on the dog and how long they have been in our program adult dogs may be housebroken, follow basic commands such as "sit", "down" and "stay", walk well on a leash and are over-all well mannered in-home companions.

RAISE FUNDS FOR ROAR BY WALKING OR RUNNING

ResQwalk is an I-phone mobile app (Android app in development) that enables animal lovers in the US & Canada to raise money for your rescue every time they go for a walk. Each week ResQwalk announces a donation pool (e.g. $2,500) and in order for your rescue to receive donations from the pool, your supporters simply need to check-in to the app when they go for a walk (with a dog, alone, or with a friend). At the end of the week donations are paid out to the rescues proportionally to the total distance walked. (Example: If Animal Haven supporters walk 100 miles for the week, and the total miles walked by all users on the app is 1,000 miles, Animal Haven would earn 10% of the donation pool. If the donation pool is $2,500, Animal Haven would earn $250).
