Wiley...has brought nothing but pure joy to our home.
In August of 2013, we adopted a dog from the Moore Oklahoma tragedy through the Safe Harbor Program.
We had recently put our dog down due to health reasons and we’re undecided about getting another dog so soon.
However, when we met Wiley it was a fit!! Such a sweet nature about him and he was such a loving animal, we just had to have him.
Since that very first day, he has brought nothing but pure joy to our home. Wiley is young and very energetic and needs a lot to keep
him occupied. It’s like have a little kid in the house all over again. Squeaky toys and half chewed up bones are
everywhere in the yard!!!! Not to mention all the running back and forth that goes on in the evening when we
are trying to settle in for the night. But you know what……he is soo worth every minute. He is the perfect fit!!!
We are so pleased with the whole experience from introduction to adoption.
Highly recommend the program to our friends who are looking for a new addition to fill their lives.
Thank you Safe Harbor for filling our home with toys, joys and laughter once again.

Just wanted to let you know how happy we are that we adopted Athena!
Just wanted to let you know how happy we are that we adopted Athena! We welcomed her into our home just a few days before Christmas and what a great present she was to us. She has adjusted so well to us. Our other pets are getting used to her. She is so well behaved. She even thinks that she is a lap dog!!!

Mowgli and I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year
My pal Mowgli and I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year and let you know that we are loving life!! Now that Winter has set in, our outdoor time is at a minimum, but as you can see, we have other ways to pass time. Yes, Mr Mowgli LOVES to watch movies!!! We spend a little bit of time on the treadmill but we would much rather be stretched out on the couch eating popcorn and renting movies!!!
I just wanted to thank you again for giving us the opportunity to be together. We couldn't be happier!!!! I hope all is well with you and all of our friends at Safe Harbor.

Marla...is doing fantastic.
We adopted Marla back in April, she was about 7 months old. We've had her nearly 9 months now and she is doing fantastic. She is very well-behaved, extremely devoted and loyal and immediately wins over absolutely everyone she meets. When we have company our friends always comment on how sweet she is. She actually has better behavior for company than she does with us -- I think she realizes by this point that she can get away with a little more with us.
She needs a lot of exercise which is good because it forces us to be active. She goes to the dog park several times a week and she has made several friends there that she loves to run around and wrestle with. She is an extremely fast runner and I think she might have some greyhound or whippet because she can outrun nearly every dog at the park. She's in good shape and very healthy (we splurge on the good dog food).
The only ones who aren't thrilled are the cats, but everyone seems to have reached an understanding so there is relative peace in the house.
Thanks again for the work that you do and please pass along to anyone who helped raise Marla that she is very loved and is doing extremely well.

Paddy Cake is a wonderful addition!
"Over a year and a half ago my mom adopted Hope for me, as a way for me to have some way to keep me going, as we knew I would be having to put my horse to sleep very soon. Hope, now Paddy Cake, has been a wonderful addition to my life! She does therapy dog work and brings smiles to everyone she meets! This little girl doesn't even know she's a dog, she thinks she's just an extension of myself and if she could, she would literally go everywhere with me! Thank you Safe Harbor, for all that you do. It could't have been a better match! Many Thanks!" Mandy and Paddy Cake
