Hank's Haven was founded by Nicole. Having been in the rescue industry and seeing the in’s and out’s, she decided that in order to truly make a difference in dogs’ lives and be proud of what she was doing, she needed to start her own. Nicole and her whole team have a deep passion for helping animals, and have devoted the rest of their lives to do so. Our BOD consists of Nicole and her husband Chris, Melissa who is an avid animal lover, rescuer and dog collar maker extraordinaire, and Megan who started as a foster for Hank’s but quickly became a member of the Hank’s family and has been an instrumental part in rescuing and rehabbing MANY dogs. The rest of our team is made up of an amazing group of fosters and volunteers all with the same desire to help our dogs live out the rest of their lives loved and cared for.
Hank's Haven was named after a Bull Terrier named Hank. He was euthanized through no fault of his own, and for no apparent reason other than "no time, no space". Nicole grew to know Hank, his story, and his need for love and the perfect home. All of that was taken from him too soon. Hank will now live on through all of the dogs that Hank's Haven will save, protect, and rehabilitate. Hank's name will live on in all of the dogs that will get the chance he never did.
Our mission is to ensure that homeless pets, pets that can no longer be cared for, as well as dogs that have no more time, come into our care and have a new outlook on life. We believe that EVERY dog has a chance at a long, healthy life full of love and snuggles.
We believe in the 3 R's....RESCUE, REHABILITATE, RE-HOME.
Every dog that comes into our care will be treated with compassion and respect. All of our rescue dogs are an extension of our family, and therefore are treated as such. There will be endless amounts of love, affection, and snuggles.
Our core values help ensure that all of our dogs continue to live long, healthy, vibrant lives. They include:
