About Pet Harbor

What exactly is Pet Harbor Rescue?

Pet Harbor Rescue is lots of things. If you examine us closely, though, you will see three primary categories within Pet Harbor Rescue:

(1) Our critters (those seeking homes and those who found homes)
(2) Our board of directors and officers
(3) Our volunteers

<What does Pet Harbor Rescue do?

Together we do many things. Our primary mission is to save the lives of Siberian Huskies in danger (when it is within our ability to do so) in Virginia and surrounding area and find them homes. Our focus is on those Siberians on death row in shelters.

Pet Harbor is a nonstock, nonprofit Virginia animal rescue organization. We operate by donation and volunteers. We have no paid employees. Our veterinary bills and the donations we receive are not balanced at all! Though we have foster homes throughout northern & central Virginia, our registered office is in Triangle, Virginia & our mailing address is:

Pet Harbor Rescue
P.O. Box 73
Bowling Green, VA 22427
(703) 583-HSKY.

The animals in our care are fostered in homes. We do not have a shelter facility but have as a future goal a no-kill shelter.

Principally a Siberian Husky and cat rescue organization, we work with mixed breeds and other breeds when space, time, and resources permit.
