    I have adopted all of my wonderful dogs in Shasta County from Haven Humane Society and from the the "pound" in Redding. I got my Queensland Heeler from Haven Human when they were located on Placer. I rescued my Finnish Spitz from the pound in Redding.

    I won't be going to Haven Humane to adopt another animal The last time I tried to adopt a dog, Haven Humane stipulalated that I bring my old dog in to see if she got along with the dog I wanted. I'm not going to do that. I'm not going to expose my older dog to the microbs that exist in an area where many animals are kept, and I resist the idea that I'm not knowledgeable enough about animals that I can't make a good decision. I will however support Haven Humane and their goals with gifts of food and money. This organization does an amazing job.
