Adopt Happiness

About Swamp Haven

Swamp Haven is more than just an animal rescue organization. We take in down-on-their-luck dogs and nurture them back to a healthy mental and physical state, so they can find their forever home. Most importantly, we teach them how to love and how to receive the love that they deserve. From medical care to behavioral training to socialization, every loving step of our rescue process is readying our rag tag group of misfits for their new family.

My husband and I are so happy that we found Lindsey with Swamp Haven. Some of my coworkers had already adopted from her and they had nothing but wonderful things to say. I had been following the Swamp Haven Instagram for a couple of months and when my eyes landed on our Ellie I knew she was meant to join our little family. We can’t say enough kind things about Swamp Haven. You’re not just adopting a member of your family but adopting an entire support system. Ellie is mine and my husband’s first dog on our own and I feel that even years down the road I could still call Lindsey up to ask questions or even just to chat about Ellie. It is clear that she is in this for the benefit of the dogs. Thank you!

It started with one, Buford. We didn’t know much about Swamp Haven at first. We learned about them from friends, who had recently adopted an abandoned puppy (a momma Rose pup). We were still grieving the loss of our beagle, Mac. But it felt lonely with just one pup in...
