Husky Haven of Florida is a wonderful rescue and assists homeless arctic breeds find their forever homes. It was after my husky Maya passed that I wanted to give back and help other huskies. My first foster, Kona, ended up being the perfect fit for our family.

My family and I just recently adopted our third husky from Husky Haven. The rescue focuses on saving huskies that have been surrendered by owners no longer wanting them or on unable to care for them. Our first girl was hit by a car and the owners decided to surrender her instead of taking her to a vet. She had a broken leg which totally heeled because Husky Haven stepped in. Our second girl was left at a shelter in North Carolina and lucky for her she was transported to Florida. Our most recent was part of a hoarding case and was severely ill. Husky Haven stepped in and gave him the care he needed. He is now an absolutely an amazing pup. Yes, their adoption process is thorough but their first concern is making sure the pups find an amazing home . They have a wonderful team of volunteers that spend many hours day and night working to find the perfect home. Most of the volunteers also have full time jobs, and a family of their own. As a volunteer for other non profit organizations in the past, I can understand the amount of time they spend and the dedication these folks have for theses animals. If I was to adopt again, it would definitely be from Husky haven.

I have watched this rescue since Francia took over the helm. To watch, not only the extreme effort, but also the live that is shared with each and every rescue is extraordinary. I have severe hay fever allergies, so I am not able to live with most dogs. But, when I had the chance to help in my minute way, I was honored to be a part of this amazing team. Francia is a one of a kind fur baby lover! The team she has developed are top notch and if the same caliber of love. They are all truly amazing

I love this rescue and everything they stand for. I got my baby girl from them and she has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. Husky haven makes sure all animals are healthy before adopting out and they will do everything they can to do so. Hopefully one day I can rescue another baby from them again.

This rescue inspires me! They never turn away the medically needed heartbreaking cases. They MATCH dogs to applicants to find the perfect FURever homes. This organization is all volunteer based; they work full time jobs and still network and fundraise selflessly for the dogs. HUNDREDS of lives, human and animal, have been changed. I have been honored to be able to adopt from and help a little ... my heart is so full from both experiences. I CANNOT day ENOUGH or recommend enough a rescue. ONE MILLION STARS!!!!!!!

Because hear that right… These are volunteers and this organization deserves 1 million stars!!!!

I adopted my beautiful, beloved Siberian Husky from Husky Haven on May 6th, 2017.
She was rescued from “Craig’s List” by Husky Haven. I am so blessed to have Maggie May as my lifelong companion. Her age when I adopted her was unknown; the estimate was 7-8 years old. I never even asked. I just knew when I saw her photo that I was going to petition to adopt “Armani”. My adopted dog, Matushka, died of Lymphoma, and I didn’t think that I would ever get over the loss of her. Maggie May has a totally different personality than my deceased Siberian. I think it’s so very important how carefully “Husky Haven“ screens people before placing these amazingly intelligent, beautiful, but headstrong dogs. It’s important that people realize that this is a LIFETIME commitment; interviews and home visits assist in the process of making sure that each dog gets the home that they deserve. Husky Haven is diligent, caring, and totally committed to finding a safe haven for these precious “Fur-babies.”

I have transported for, donated to, and now adopted from Husky Haven of Florida. Our initial contact was, sadly, about 4 puppies being transferred to them from Texas. By the time the pups got to my leg for transport, it was clear that something was very wrong. HHOF had an event going on that day, but gave me encouragement and support to do what was in the best interest of Chandler, Ross, Joey and Rachael. With a diagnosis of severe parvo, and later distemper, nothing was spared in the care for these special angels. Sadly, Ross and Rachael did not make it, even with the best of care. Chandler and Joey still had a rough road ahead, but recovered well enough to finish their journey to Husky Haven. Francia, Kim Pink, and my vet were in constant contact about their care. It would have been much less money, time and effort to just let these pups pass on. Husky Haven takes their commitment to each and every pup very seriously. They take on owner abandoned pups, shelter rescues, and many requiring a lot of medical care. When I was ready for my own pup, a sibling for my English Springer Spaniel, Wesley, HHOF found me the perfect match. Now I have Nero, my own HH rescue. God bless HHOF, Francia, and her organization for all they do!

Husky Haven was a dream to work with! My husband kept looking at their page so we submitted our application without the intention to rescue right away but there were a couple we’d consider. When we found our Echo was going with another couple, we accepted it an figured we’d keep an eye out for another that catches our eye. After talking to Francia, and finding out Echo had become available, we met up with the fosters for a play date with our first fur baby and decided we’d take him! The first few weeks were ROUGH but Francia was so supportive through my “Idk if we can keep him” texts. Almost 2 years later, we wouldn’t know what to do without our Echo. Thank you Husky Haven for all you do!

Our second rescue husky had passed away at age 13 1/2 and we were looking for another to join our third rescue husky, Jewels. Francia Vognini and Husky Haven picked out the exactly right pupster for us (Jagger) and we are forever committed to Husky Haven of Florida's mission. They are caring and compassionate and always match the right pup with the right family!

I was interested in fostering a husky as we already had 2 and felt we had room to help another one. We given a chance to foster a 8 yr old abandoned husky who ended up being adopted by us. Yes we are foster failures. Since then I have been volunteering for Husky Haven and do home checks, dog assessments and transporting. Everyone who works with this organization has one thing in mind and that is the welfare of the dog. If the dog needs medical care, it is taken care of, if the dog needs training that is taken care of. You will not find a more caring organization than Husky Haven.

My husband and I began looking for a dog to join our family after losing our lab about 4 months earlier. We researched rescues in Florida to find one that was a perfect fit for us. We found Husky Haven of Florida. The application process was detailed but in the best interest of the dogs. We adopted from them in August of 2017. We enjoyed working with them so much that we did it again May 2018. Great people who truly care about the animals. We love Husky Haven of Florida!

Over two years ago I lost my heart with my Shiba Inu passing the Rainbow Bridge. I took some time to recover and having dealing with such a loss I swore I would rescue my next dog as I knew it would not be long before I had another. During the transition I found Husky Haven of FL and checked out the organization. I submitted an application as I had huskies before when I was younger so I knew and loved the breed. I met Francia along the way and I could NEVER say enough good things about her, the dedication she has to the organization with running it, the volunteers I had met along the way. Thankfully our paths crossed and not only did I rescue a small husky puppy I also had the opportunity to volunteer with the organization, attend meet and greets and help others find their next dog to fill their lives and their hearts. 1 dog rescued saves 1 heart in the world. What a wonderful, wonderful organization and they SHOULD BE on the Top Rated List of Non-Profits. Thank you! DM Jacksonville, FL

I lost my dog of 14 years last year (2016) and just could not imagine not having a dog in my life but I wanted to change breeds as I didn't want to compare a new dog with my last one. I had huskies in the past and started searching and came across Husky Haven of Florida and met Francia Vogini - what a wonderful person with the biggest heart. Sent in my application and spoke to Francia a couple times - my first choice fell through on a rescue BUT puppies came along and I knew it was meant to be - YES A PUPPY! WOW what an experience. Sad to say it was not a good fit in a condo with a puppy and worked with Francia to rehome my girl and came to the conclusion that I it would be good for me to foster and transport for the organization. There are so many selfless folks working as a team trying to rescue and help save lives of these beautiful creatures and not only do they save the dogs life, they also save the human. My heart opened wider helping as I could and it was a great experience. I tell folks all the time whenever I can about this organization and the wonderful work they are doing! I am proud to say I had the opportunity to come across such wonderful people and am proud to say I am a client as well as a volunteer.

After our previous husky passed - I wasn't sure we would get another.
However, as I was scanning HHOF website and looking at available dogs my husband became very interested in Hudson. We contacted HHOF and filled out the adoption paperwork.
HHOF was very thorough in their questions and checked with our previous vet about the care we gave to our previous husky.. HHOF doesn't just want to find "A" home for their dogs - they want to find the BEST home. Huskies are a special breed that take alot of patience and determination to handle. Many people just see the beautiful dog and don't realize the work involved with owning a husky- so then they get frustrated and get rid of them. It's surprising to many people how many "huskies" live in Florida.
We had previously owned 3 huskies -and had knowledge and experience with their behavior.
HHOF answered all of our questions and worked with our schedule so we could meet Hudson.
It takes Very special people to run a non profit dog rescue - and Francia and her team are VERY SPECIAL. Her love and patience shows no boundaries.
Francia takes her own huskies to schools to educate children on dogs and in particular Huskies.
Francia is very passionate about providing the dogs with the love and care that they deserve.
She works tirelessly at fund raisers so that she can rescue as many dogs as possible and provide them with medical care when needed.
I know that receiving money would help HHOF with the tremendous expense of rescuing and providing medical care for the dogs that need it.
Please consider HHOF so they can continue to find the "best" homes, and medical care for their rescues. .
I have added a couple of photos of Hudson. He goes to work with my husband everyday - and loves the attention customers give him. He also loves swimming in the pool.
Thank you

I started as an adopter which was a wonderful experience. They really weed out anyone not serious by having you fill out many well thought out questions and once approved there was a homecheck where a volunteer brought his own Husky to show the temperment. After that it was only a day or two before 3 volunteers each drove a leg of the way to deliver my dog from south Florida.

.I have stayed engaged and had monthly donation withdrawals deducted and then last week I felt the time was right to start volunteering myself.

I can't say enough great things about H.H.O.F as an adopter, donor and volunteer. Thank you for all that you do!!!

I rescued the love of my life, Macy two years ago and I have been a foster for Husky Haven for a year now. This rescue is the best! They hardly ever turn a pup in need down. They fully vet the pups before adopting out. The pups are fostered in peoples homes where they grow and learn how to live amongst us people, instead of being kept in a shelter or boarding, unsocialized. When you adopt from Husky Haven you are adopting the best!

A wonderful rescue organization for Huskies and husky mixes of all ages. I recently adopted THREE dogs from them. Nyssa, a beautiful husky girl was first. We then took in Snow as a foster and fell in love so we adopted him as well. And last, but not least. we adopted Jace, a loving husky mix. Everyone has been incredibly helpful with the adoption process. We now have a pack of five in our live ly household and are planning to foster in the future, once everyone is well settled with us.

Husky Haven of Florida carefully selected the perfect husky for my family. Being able to talk directly to the foster mom before the adoption was soooo helpful in preparing for the new addition. They even arranged transport across the state. After adopting, they continued to provided great support in dealing with some health issues of the new dog that had not been previously evident. I had been a skeptic of rescues, but HHOF certainly changed my mind. I now volunteer as I am able, and love staying connecting with these wonderful, caring people. They truly care as much about making happy families as they do rescuing the dogs.

Husky Haven is an amazing rescue group. I met them at a charity event and followed them for several years. I had recently rescued from another person who was in it, I found out later, more for profit not the well being of the dogs. When we decided to rescue again, we went with Husky Haven they rescue all dogs no matter the shape the husky is in and they bring them back to health and then pair them with the right people who will give them the loving homes they deserve. They screened and asked us many questions not only about us but our other fur babies. We rescued a poor baby who was abandoned on the streets and was just hours away from death when Husky Haven swooped in and saved him. We are so blessed with our Thor, he fit immediately with our other 3 and it's like they all grew up together. Him and my Lancelot are best friends and most pics have to be of them together lol. Please if you love huskies and want to help, this is the organization to help. I just wish I could hit the lottery to help them money donations so the the pups that need medical attention can get it.

Husky Haven has been absolutely wonderful to work with through adopting both of our dogs. We worked with Francia, who was a huge help and still remains in communication with us, happy and ready to answer any questions we have! :) A year or so after adopting our first dog, we knew we wanted to add another to the family but wanted to find the right fit. Husky Haven and Francia worked with us to find the perfect dog to fit in with our family and our other dog. What rescue does that!? They have been incredible as far as help, encouragement, and support every step of the way. We can't recommend them enough!

Husky Haven of Florida Inc. helped me find my best friend. Francia fostered my Max herself for nearly 4 months because no one else was the right fit, but she helped us find each other and I will be forever grateful. Max is my whole world and I've been inspired to begin volunteering because their work means so much to me. They are thorough with researching adopters when placing dogs and only want the best for those that they take in. Everyone who contributes to this organization does so out of the goodness of their own hearts and that truly says something about the work that is being done. HHOFL truly has passion for their work and their pups.

Our family received help from Husky Haven of Florida when we rescued two huskies from a backyard breeder (in the form of advices and breed info). We were so impressed with their genuine care and dedication to helping huskies that our family started volunteering for this rescue org. We did some transports, some home checks, some petsitting, and some fostering. We ended up adopting one of our foster pup, so we now have three huskies:) . Husky Haven of FL is a most excellent rescue org. It's mind blowing how fast volunteers respond to requests for help. We have never seen a rescue more efficiently run and more effective than this one. From the alert of husky in need to adoption, the process is very streamlined, while strict to ensure a best home for each pup in care. Our family is proud to be a part of this rescue's volunteer community. The ever growing number of volunteers ( I think most adopters become volunteers) is a great proof of this rescue's integrity and achievement in their goal to help any huskies in need.

They take in the high priority huskies that require extensive medical treatments which means expensive bills but never complain and by the grace above they never waiver .

As an animal rescuer in the Panhandle of Florida, I rely heavily on the good graces of Husky Haven of Florida to assist us with the stray and owner surrendered Huskies in our area. While we do have some good rescue groups here in Pensacola, there are no groups to assist our homeless Husky population which is, sadly, on the rise. The team at Husky Haven has not only accepted every Husky that we've needed help with, but the coordination that goes on with them for each of these dogs behind the scenes is thorough, professional, and has truly been a pleasure. They are quick to make arrangements for fosters, transportation from the Panhandle to their location in Central Florida, and also for each dog's vetting needs. Some Huskies they've taken in from the Pensacola area have had major medical needs with costs in the hundreds and even thousands of dollars, which they have been very prompt to supply treatment for. The following that this group has built for themselves because of their good reputation seems to enable them to find appropriate permanent placement in forever homes for the Huskies they rescue as well. This, of course, is also of great importance for the long term wellbeing of dogs who enter into rescues. Husky Haven of Florida is top notch when it comes to animal Rescue.

I adopted a rescue from Husky Haven- her name is Ariel Marie- 6 yrs. old, 35 lbs, she is a mini-fun size husky, noted by her vet, not accepted by the AKC, they have to weigh 45 and up., she has had a hard life, was found on the streets of Port St. Lucie, Fl., I was looking for a Shepard, and had applied for a husky a while back, but never got called, finally after I had my eye on this shepard, they tell me about Ariel, Zaria called me, said I got the perfect dog for you.... in the end, me and my cousin travel to orlando, pouring rain out from Bradenton, and its been 7 mos this month, so it really took this long for her to settle in, play with toys, which she had no clue, Horrible... now she runs her toys and babies all over the house....
A wonderful wonderful organization, run souly on contribution to help these animals when they come in.... I recommend Husky Haven every time someone sees her... Francia, and their staff of fosters, and everybody involved have nothing but the BEST in mind for these animals... CUDOS TO HUSKY HAVEN.. and their miraculous work!!!!!!!!

I love that Husky Haven of Florida doesn't turn their backs on the dogs that might be deemed too "old" or "broken" or "injured" to try and rehabilitate. It's not hard to commit rescue dollars to pull a beautiful puppy or 2 year old out of a shelter who has good manners,good health and a wonderful temperament, because those pups usually get adopted out quickly. It takes a lot more work, commitment, patience, money and compassion to commit to pull the older, the lame, the not entirely perfect, the abused, the non-socialized and the terrified from the shelter. Many of HHF's dogs come from death row - quite a few in just the nick of time. They are shown that life, and people, can be wonderful and kind and are given the best chance possible to heal and thrive. I've never met better people who share all that they have - and sometimes more - to help these beautiful and deserving dogs. My Juneau thanks you, HHF for rescuing her. Without you all, she'd not be the very happy pup she is today and I'd not be the lucky person who adopted her.

The work Husky Haven of Florida does caught my eye on a Husky Facebook site and brought me to tears. I began following them on FB and befriended Francia. The tireless efforts of this organization I just cannot put into words. They truly put the welfare of these fur babies ahead of their own personal lives. The networking and teamwork is amazing. I truly believe they never sleep and never say no to a Husky that needs their help. Their stories are so heartfelt and they truly work miracles. I own 3 huskies myself and know first hand how special this breed is. I live 4 hours away and work full time, so I do my part by actively donating to help with surgeries and special needs. I am close to retirement, and when I do I will apply to do volunteer services or whatever else Husky Haven needs. The selfless dedication of Francia and her staff far exceeds 5 stars!!

We adopted Tala (the fur baby on the left) from HHOFL in March, and we could not have imagined working with a more thoughtful, organized, and overall amazing rescue as first-time adopters. Everyone in the organization, from application to adoption and beyond, truly and deeply cares about each and every single dog and makes sure that they do everything in their power to find loving homes. Not only have we found the perfect fluffy addition to our family, but the humans also find themselves a home in this HHOFL family. They deserve every little bit of recognition for their hard work!

Husky Haven of Florida stepped up to rescue a dog abandoned at the vet completely last minute, saving her from imminent danger at a kill shelter. I am so appreciative of the way this organization is run, from intakes to adoptions. 10/10 bones!

Husky Haven of Florida is an outstanding rescue organization. Francia helped to place the perfect husky in desperate need of rescuing into my home and then 4 months later she helped to place another perfect companion and pet into my home. I never realized how incomplete my home was until adding 2 dogs. I love the organization so much I started volunteering to help in any way that I can, it’s so fulfilling knowing my small part helps to rescue a precious life.

This is an amazing organization filled with incredible people. They are VERY thorough in their application process and they are adept at matching the right dog with the right person. Due to their high energy and care demands, Siberian Huskies are one of the most abandoned dog breeds. Thankfully Husky Haven and their vast, family-like network of fosters are able to expertly use all of the resources at their disposal to give all of these good girls and boys a second chance at life, one of them being my own baby, Odin.
