Animal Haven Soho brings decades of experience to rescue and care.

Animal Haven is a no-kill rescue located on Centre St. in SoHo in New York City. Serving the local community since 1967, Animal Haven is one of the oldest and most respected rescue institutions in the city. In addition to the shelter/adoption center, it also operates a mobile rescue van and provides programs to build connections between humans and animals.
One of those programs is Caring Kids, which educates teens and children about animal welfare issues that are important to their community as well as teaches them the basics of caring for a pet. Animal Haven actively seeks to place the pets it rescues in homes as soon as possible, so the fees for adopting an animal are in the low hundreds of dollars and include vaccinations, spaying and/or neutering. All animals that Animal Haven takes in are screened for behavior problems and given a thorough medical exam before being put up for adoption.
As with any shelter/rescue center, the backbone of Animal Haven are its volunteers. Volunteers provide much needed care to the animals that Animal Haven rescues and perform a wide variety of services including walking the animals, bathing them, assisting potential adopters and socializing animals to ease their transition into a new home. Animal Haven happily accepts donations in a number of forms and more information can be found on their website about different ways to donate.
Animal Haven also rents out their indoor facility for various events and/or training programs or even if you are just looking for an indoor space to have a run/play with your dog on a rainy day. For specific rates and policies, I recommend that you contact the shelter.
Pros: Experienced, dedicated staff. Low adoption fees encourage potential applicants.

The best place to adopt and take classes
posted 4 years ago
I adopted my second dog from Animal Haven, a female pomeranian named Tatum. The process went smoothly and I couldn't be happier having her in my family with my other pomeranian, Danny. I've also taken courses through Andrea Arden and was very pleased with the instruction offered. Animal Haven also offers small dog play groups which I take my dogs and they enjoy the time spent there. I recommend Animal Haven to anyone who is interested in adopting an animal, be it a cat or dog since I had such a positive experience during my adoption process of Tatum. I would highly recommend Animal Haven for all the services that they offer and the kind and caring staff that work there.
Pros: Experienced and caring staff, dedicated staff, low cost adoptions, dog training courses, small dog play groups

Excellent indoor space
posted 5 years ago
I have taken both my dogs to various classes at Andrea Arden Dog Training in the facility at Animal Haven SoHo (see separate Andrea Arden review). Animal Haven is staffed by caring and knowledgeable employees and volunteers. They have a terrific, large indoor space for training, events etc. I have always been impressed by the enthusiasm and congeniality of the staff during my visits. My dogs LOVE going to Animal Haven. They get excited the minute we walk through the door.
Pros: great space, knowledgeable staff
