I have been a volunteer with the Harbor Association of Volunteers for Animals (HAVA) since the group was founded (actually re-founded, since HAVA inherited its name, legal status, and mission from a wonderful Westport, WA, rescue that had gone dormant). Today, I have only minor personal involvement with HAVA, but I am close to the great friends and great animal lovers I've made here. I have never seen a more dedicated, more loving, and more responsible group of people. HAVA is an all-volunteer organization that today operates a cat shelter, a dog fostering program, a trap-neuter-release program for feral cats, an emergency medical fund for sick or injured strays, and a low-income spay-neuter program for both cats and dogs. HAVA also has a mobile adoption van (donated to us by another non-profit) that takes animals out across a wide rural area and sometimes serves to transport at-risk animals from kill shelters to places of safety. This is an AMAZING accomplishment for a tiny group based in a small town! HAVA does a fantastic job with its limited resources and seemingly unlimited energy.
