About Us


Sonoma’s Haven Inc. was founded in June 2015 after seeing the shortage of fosters that can take in rescue dogs needing a safe place to stay until they find a foster or are adopted.

Without space, they are not able to take the dogs in. At times there might be an emergency, and a dog needs medical attention and a safe place to stay immediately.

We are here to help the rescues, and our organization creates a safe place for dogs to begin the process of healing and learning the joys of life. We built our new facility in Sealy, Texas, in 2018 in which we were able to include a lounge area for the dogs to spend time and enjoy some of the experiences they would get inside a home.

This lounge area is equipped with comfortable couches for them to hang out, decompress, and get one-on-one attention from our staff and volunteers.

Love & Passion for Pets

All our staff members love and have a passion for caring for these dogs that stay in our facility. We are the stepping stone for these dogs as they learn how to trust human beings again and enjoy life and prepare them for a family. We have a large fenced area that they get to run and play with each other.

Every dog deserves a loving family. To help network the dogs for finding a foster home or loving family we take pictures and videos to assist in networking the dogs. Along with video chats with adopters out of state to ensure the best match.

We offer dogs a comfortable and happy environment as they await a foster home or a forever home. We give each dog the care and attention it needs. Each dog has a spacious kennel to help reduce the stress associated with boarding.
