I never met a more caring, dedicated, and passionate group of people than I have at Pasado's Safe Haven. Everyone there from the management/administrative team to the farm hands loves the animal residents. It evident from the way they speak about them and how they treat them. Every animal is cherished and loved, no matter what. I want to spread the word to as many people as possible about this wonderful organization!

I have been a volunteer at Pasado's Safe Haven since 2001. It is a wonderful sanctuary for rescued abused farm animals, as well as dogs and cats. They not only receive top notch care, but lots of love as well. The staff and volunteers strive to end animal abuse, whether domestic or farm animals.

Fantastic work for the animals! A great place to volunteer on an ongoing basis or for a community or company caring day. Very supportive. Also, love the events at the sanctuary: Fire & Earth cooking classes, tours, LoveBash! and celebrations for the turkeys. Absolutely do visit this caring place. The animals arrive at the sanctuary from terrible situations of abuse and neglect — however, the sanctuary itself is a happy, caring place of healing on a beautiful property. They do great work including educational outreach, promoting plant-based meals, and advocating for animals (including working with local police and animal welfare organizations).

Amazing! I've visited several animal sanctuaries, including Farm Sanctuary and The Gentle Barn, and Pasado's Safe Haven vastly outshines them all in terms of animal care and teamwork.

Best rescue I've ever volunteered for. Much better environment for the animals compared to the typical animal shelters with overcrowded kennels. It is in a natural setting, and well-designed. The dogs have their own little cabins with a doggy door to their own yard. Nice short trail by a stream and roads around the sanctuary to walk the dogs.

Pasado's is amazing! 85 acres of beautiful rolling hills and well kept grounds and animal enclosures. This is what an animal sanctuary SHOULD be. It's lovely, peaceful and worth visiting. The drive is great
The animals were all well cared for, happy and even the ones who were more isolated due to temperament had a large open, clean kennel area to play in. You could tell right away as you entered each area, that the animals love the staff and volunteers too...even after they have come from such brutal beginnings, we didn't see more than a handful that we exhibiting any fear at all. A true testimate to the resilience of animals!
Way to go Pasado's! Keep up the great work!

Snohomish County and the Greater Seattle Area are so lucky to have an organization like this in their back yard. This organization is not only a sanctuary for homeless, abused and neglected animals but a strategic partner is the fight to end animal cruelty. PSH is making a true impact by improving animal welfare laws, holding people accountable for acts of animal cruelty, providing educational opportunities for the public, and caring for the animals on their farm.

I've worked closely with numerous non-profits for over 20 years. From everything I've witnessed, this staff, along with its volunteers and donors, are the real deal. They are doing the tough work day in and day out that is making an impact.

Amazing people, amazing animals, amazing passion! The first day driving up to Pasado's was a dream come true. I've wanted to volunteer for an animal sanctuary for years and they blew my expectations out of the water for what a rescue facility can be. Animals are not only given a second chance at life here, but an amazing home, if need be, staffed by people who's compassion and love for animals is more than abundant. I'm so grateful to be apart of such an amazing, loving family and to be able to help all their beautiful inhabitants live an abundant, safe life.

Volunteering at Pasados is by far the most rewarding thing I have ever done. The grounds are amazing! Each and every animal gets the absolute best care when they go there. Each dog gets its own cabin and yard! The kitties have hundreds of toys and multiple catios to choose from. The farm animals have fields to roam and play in. Pasados truly is the definition of animal sanctuary. I feel so honored to be apart of something so amazing with a group of people who truly love animals and enjoy spending their time helping them and loving them.

My time at Pasado's began at a tour during the holiday season. I was so moved and inspired by the work they do, I just had to be a part of it! When I am able, I enjoy every minute on the farm and never regret joining the volunteer team. ☺️

Hello, My name is Kyle Nelson, owner and operator of Kyle's Dog Training. I have been a volunteer at Pasado's for over 3 years and it was because of my experience with the dogs there and cruelty investiagtor Kim Coon, dog lead Caroline Milleson and many others that I found my true passion in life: working with dogs. Pasado's is a top notch non profit organization whose staff and volunteers work tirelessly to save dogs, cats, chickens, donkeys, horses and cows from cruel situations, puppy mills and hoarders. My experience volunteering there has been an amazing one and I know they will continue to do the exceptional and inspirational !
