Welcome to our (Future) Home!

Thanks to the generosity of two longtime supporters, Safe Haven has a new home at 1420 Post Rd., right next to the Wells Library.


Rex and Judy Lambert of Bell Farm Antiques and Backyard Birds and Frills in York, have ensured Safe Haven’s No-Kill mission will continue, by purchasing this vacant daycare facility. Now they’re turning it into the future home of Safe Haven’s Adoption Center.

Check out the progress of the renovation at our Facebook page.

Now we’re asking all the rest of our supporters to step up and help us pay back their incredible generosity.

One-time or Monthly Donations

You can mail us a check made out to Safe Haven Capital Fund, PO Box 1842, Wells ME 04090. (Yes, that’s a separate PO box.) That would be terrific.

Of course, not everyone can write out a check for $1000 or $5000, as much as they might like to. But how about $5? Can you spare $5 a month? That’s less than the cost of one drive-through breakfast or a tall frappucino. Won’t you give up one lousy Egg McMuffin meal for the kitties?

Or make it $10 per month if you can. Or $25, $50, or even $100. Whatever amount works best with your budget is fine with us.

A monthly contribution, drawn directly from your credit/debit card, PayPal or checking account, is a painless way to support Safe Haven’s mission. It takes only a few seconds to set one up. Just click the button, and be sure to check the “Monthly Contribution” box. Thanks!

Tag Sales every weekend in July & August

Due to overwhelming positive response from both shoppers and donors, Safe Haven is expanding our summer tag sale schedule.

Our Tag Sale location next to the Wells IGA will be open EVERY SAT-SUN in July and August. Hours: Sat: 8-6pm, Sun: 9-4pm.

We’re also open weekday afternoons and evenings when we’re working, tagging, etc. But there’s no firm schedule, so if you’re heading to the IGA, Dairy Queen or laundromat anyway, drop in and browse.

Please keep shopping, and keep those donations coming! Your support keeps our No-Kill organization going! Thanks to your support, our vet bills (which average $50,000-75,000 a year) are paid up to date! Thank you!

Every penny you spend at our sales goes toward vet bills and our Capitol Building Fund, so we can purchase our own building for our adoption center and thrift shop.

Got donations? Please don’t leave them at our tag sale location. Drop them off at our Adoption Center, 1616 Post Rd (just a few doors south). (Please, no junk. We have to pay to haul it away.)

Another Monster Yard Sale May 31-June 1

godzillaIt’s back — like another Godzilla movie! But a lot less scary.

It’s Safe Haven’s next yard sale. Thanks to the generosity and support of the owners of the storefront we used last weekend (next to the Wells IGA), we are staying in the same place this coming weekend – May 31 and June 1.

Good thing, too. We still haven’t emptied the four huge storage unit of donations — that’s right, FOUR storage units of donations.

So shake the change from your old fruit jar and join us this weekend for bargains, bargains and more bargains!

Is this weekend’s sale too nice to be called a “yard sale?”

This weekend’s (May 24-25) big fundraiser features so many rich and valuable donations, some people think it’s not quite accurate to call it a yard sale. “Look at these gorgeous items. And the display! This is more like a fancy gift shop than a yard sale,” they complain.

Whatever you call it, one thing’s for sure. YOU won’t be complaining when you see the vast display filling the storefront next to the Wells IGA Food Market on Rt. 1 in Wells. Great stuff, great prices!

Take a look at just some of the FOUR storage units of household and decorative items, books and miscellaneous bargains you can scoop up, many for just pennies on the dollar. (Click to see a larger version.)

Home furnishings, candlesticks, etc
