  • 2. Heaven on Earth for a homeless pet

    by: rinthea

    I am the director of Safe Haven of Iowa County and we spend a morning with Tom Colvin who spent several hours with us. He gave us a tour and alot of helpful feedback on what things to work towards at our own sanctuary.\r\n\r\nEVERY SINGLE staff person we met in the hallway was very polite and kind. I have never seen so many people in such a challenging field be so kind!\r\n\r\nThe facility is a MUST see! They are what all of us small sanctuary's aspire to be like!\r\n\r\nWay to go ARL of I! Your simply amazing!!!


    Fantastic facility and staff!


    Too far away from my home:)
