Animal Haven has been rescuing and re-homing New York’s dogs and cats for nearly 50 years. This Spring they are proud to celebrate the opening of their new state-of-the-art facility with a star-studded gala on Wednesday, June 8th from 7-10pm. The event will be at NOMO Soho and include special tours of the new shelter at 200 Centre Street in Manhattan for the expected 250 gala attendees.
Jon Stewart, Nicky Hilton, Chloe Kardoggian and Marnie the Dog are among the famous guests slated to make an appearance during the festivities. Aside from these fabulous celebs, the event will feature a “Pet Me” lounge full of adoptable pups, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a DJ and a silent auction.
The new and improved Animal Haven Shelter is scheduled to open in July, but the dedicated staff and volunteers have continued their mission of hope and rescue during the wait. Without a brick and mortar facility to house the animals, more than 70 dogs and cats have been taken into foster homes across the tri-state area. Interested adopters can view available dogs here and set up meet and greets through the links on each pup’s individual adoption page.
Animal Haven plans to open their new facility gradually. The goal of the revamp is to showcase the adoptable pets in a warm, inviting light. Potential adopters will feel comfortable and welcome as they view the happier, healthier dogs and cats. Some of the modern features of the facility include an open spacious design, healthy air circulation systems, and brighter, more inviting holding areas. As always, the objective is to save abandoned, abused and neglected pets while educating the public on the joys of adoption and kindness to animals.
If you just can’t wait to get a glimpse of the new Animal Haven Shelter and adopt your next best friend, they are offering limited hours by appointment on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until the official opening.
