Mary Ann Morris Animal Society & Safe Haven Puppy Rescue
(M.A.M.A.S. - S.H.P.R.)

M.A.M.A.S. or S.H.P.R. Huh???

Safe Haven Puppy Rescue (S.H.P.R.) is the adoption branch of the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society. Because the M.A.M.A.S.'s shelter is in South Carolina, but we adopt to people up the east coast, we list dogs for adoption on Petfinder® under Safe Haven Puppy Rescue out of Reston, Virginia, as this is a centralized location in the Richmond, VA to Baltimore, MD region. This is also the region where a majority of the foster families are located. We know it can be confusing, but M.A.M.A.S. is the trunk and roots of our animal society which has branches for the care and healing at the shelter, the transfer to northern rescues so they can find adopters, and our adoptions along the way. The transport branch is what enables these wonderful animals to find the new and happy home they deserve either through our adoptions (S.H.P.R.) or transfer to our Rescue Partners.
