Our Mission: Not Only a Statement

Animal Safe Haven and Adoptions, Inc. (ASHA) works to help rescue as many stray, feral, abandoned, homeless, and abused animals as possible from our community, local cities, and local counties. We work to end the suffering of overpopulation and unwanted animals, by effectively reducing the number of animals abandoned and abused through supporting spay/neuter programs. We provide temporary foster care for pets of people in a crisis who will want their animals back. We participate in catching, vetting, & relocating feral colonies from dangerous areas in order to eventually end the suffering of all feral cats. We take in and adopt out cats, dogs, small animals and farm pets from all over Maryland. We provide food, shelter and vet care to the animals no matter what their age, breed, or sex. With us they have no time limit to find the perfect forever family.

What We Do:

We help animals that are in dire and extreme situations such as running up and down highways or living in sewer systems. We work in areas that are too dangerous for typical TNR programs, such as beside highways, in dangerous areas of the city, or in decrepit buildings planned to be demolished. We go the extra mile that other people and groups usually won't. We have many years of experience with domestic, stray, feral, abused, and abandoned pets. We also have volunteers and board members with experience with small animals, farm animals, wild animals, and exotic animals. We are dedicated to bettering the lives of any animal that is unwanted or homeless. Through rescue, rehab, spay & neuter, and adoption, we strive to lessen the number of animals that suffer from abuse and neglect. We treat every and any animal as family from the moment it comes in to our care and forever after. Any animal once rescued by us is welcome back any time in the future no matter what.

We care about the animals because we know they are not deserving of whatever situation or tragedy that led them to our care. And because we are in a position where we can create a positive impact on their lives we feel we must do all that we can. Stray and feral kittens and young cats that are caught and rescued are typically scared, aggressive, and unsocialized at first. Thus many places and people would deem them "unadoptable" and would euthanize them on the spot, or send them back to the awful situation they came from. We do not. We have proven that with time, patience, and love they are able to be rehabbed and eventually learn to trust humans. Some cats may take just days, others weeks, months or years. Their options are limited if they do not show that they can cohabitate with people. So we work hard to find the perfect forever family, or farm, for each rescued animal. We will do what we can, as often as we can, to help the animals that are in need.
