Stray, abandoned and surrendered animals in Howard have a new place to go on their way to their forever home.

Haven Animal Rescue and Community Outreach hosted an open house Saturday to celebrate the opening of it’s new shelter.
    
People were able to come in for fun, a tour and possibly find a new furry member for their family.
    
The non-profit is run by volunteers and is dedicated to helping the pets and people of Northeast Wisconsin.
    
The organization moved into the space in May and has already shown it’s needed in the area, “It’s never a good thing to have a full shelter but as of yesterday we are now full we have 14 adoptable cats, we have 4 temporary stay cats, we have one temporary stay dog and we have four adoptable bunnies. So we are full we are busy and we are hoping to get a lot of pets adopted,” said Leigh Ann Wagner Korening, founder and president, Haven Animal Rescue and Community Outreach.

Organizers say the new shelter is the culmination of three years of fundraising, hard work, planning, and dedication to the animal rescue’s goal to be a full-service animal shelter in the Howard area.
