Guardian Adoption Program (GAP)

There is an overwhelming need to find wonderful homes for wonderful pets. Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary, a relatively small sanctuary with limited funding and facilities, has the goal of meeting this need. To fill in the gap between need and availability of services, Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary has established the Guardian Adoption Program (GAP) to help you find and place your beloved pet in a new home. You can list your pet's photo and biographical data in the GAP listing on our web site. Prospective adopters can view your listing. If interested, prospective adopters will fill out a GAP Adopter Agreement (Adopter Profile)
that we will forward to you for review and further contact with the prospective adopter.

To List Your Pet with the Guardian Adoption Program

  • The pet must reside in the Santa Clara County.
  • Complete the GAP Guardian Agreement.
  • Donate at least $20.00 to Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary for each listing. (SHAS members donate $15.00 for their first listing.)
  • Fill out our GAP Pet Profile.
  • All GAP pets must be spayed or neutered.
  • Gather current vaccinations, tests and spayed or neutered records.
  • Once we have listed your pet on our web site, confirm that the details are correct.
  • You will remain completely responsible for your pet until the pet is adopted.
  • Review prospective Adopter Profiles promptly upon receipt.
  • Contact and screen prospective adopters before placing your pet in their new home.
  • Discuss with the Adopter the cost of the transfer. We suggest that, at a minimum, the adopter donate $75.00 to Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary, or another animal welfare agency, to ensure good intentions with the current pet guardian.
  • Please advise Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary of the completed transfer.
  • Your listing will remain on our web site up to six months, or until you ask us to remove the pet. The listing can be renewed for an additional six months at your request without any additional donation.
