Established in 1966, Animal Haven is one of greater Kansas Citys largest non-profit, no-kill animal shelters. Animal Haven serves our community as both an adoption center and as the largest organization that manages lost/stray pets for twelve cities and municipalities in Johnson County, including Shawnee. Animal Haven cares for more than 4,000 abandoned, abused and unwanted pets each year and works full time to reunite lost pets with their owners. We maintain a strong working relationship with the Kansas Animal Health Department and other area municipal shelters to transfer pets into our adoption program that are at risk of being euthanized. Our primary objective is to place pets into lifelong, caring homes through adoptions and lost pet reunions and to provide a higher quality of life for homeless pets through education and collaboration with the animal welfare community.
