heath's haven rescue & sanctuary

Posing for Paws

Last summer, I started doing some volunteer photography for Heath’s Haven Rescue & Sanctuary in Athol, Idaho. I fell absolutely in love with the dogs, the organization and the people who run it. 

This is my way of helping.

About Heath's Haven

Heath’s Haven Rescue & Sanctuary is a home-based special needs rescue and sanctuary for dogs with neurological issues, spinal injuries, paralysis and mobility issues. Heath’s Haven takes in dogs at risk of euthanasia in shelters as well as private parties.

The dogs rescued by Heath’s Haven are never transferred to other rescues and they are never euthanized unless their quality of life is poor or euthanasia is medically necessary. Dogs that are severely medically challenged and dogs requiring hospice care, live out the rest of their years as a sanctuary resident with dignity and love
