The Safe Haven Network Referral Program Volunteers

The SHN Referral Program connects domestic violence advocates to animal safe havens to provide temporary care for survivors of domestic violence.  Our innovative secure online portal does a lot of the work, but we need help getting the pets to their safe havens.  

The Safe Haven Network is now accepting applications to volunteer with the Referral Program through our partnership with Lovin' Life Rescue. Read below for more information.

Onboarding Volunteers

Onboarding volunteers go to domestic violence agencies and animal welfare providers to teach the staff about the SHN Referral Program and help them register as users on the portal.


Short-Term Fosters

Short-term fosters hold the survivors' pets for a short period of time - usually no longer than a week - until the long-term safe haven is finalized.


Transportation Volunteers

Transportation volunteers coordinate with domestic violence advocates to pick up the survivors' pets and drop them off at their safe haven or short-term foster.

I understand that a one-day training on domestic violence, provided by The Safe Haven Network, will be required before I can foster or transport SHN pets. *
