Haven of Hope has saved hundreds of dogs from abusive and neglectful situations, dumped and abandoned dogs, and last chance dogs with no other Hope from shelters and communities throughout Oklahoma.






Would you like to be a part of our new facility and expansion efforts?  Please check out our Eagle Scout video (created by Seth Padgham) to see the progress we are making toward our brand new facility, and help us if you can by donating!  When our new building/facility opens, we will have the capacity to accept up to 40 new dogs and puppies and house them comfortably and provide access to lots of outdoor time in our dog yards!  Please help us grow so we can SAVE MORE DOGS!!!  Just click on the donate button!!!!  Any amount helps!



Haven of Hope Rescue Foundation

offers dog adoptions near Oklahoma City and surrounding areas.  We rescue dogs from hopeless situations and find loving homes for them after making sure they are healthy both physically and emotionally.  We love what we do!!!





Since 2009, we have rescued or have been a significant factor in rescuing hundreds of dogs and puppies. Our greatest wish is to have the ability to expand and grow so that we can reach further, act faster, and snatch more lives back from the brink. Our hearts are SO in this. Please be a part of our solution and join us to give them HOPE.

We focus our energy on saving dogs that have no hope, no other options. We do not discriminate based on age, sex, color, breed, length of fur or ability to obey basic commands or stay off the furniture. And slobber doesn't bother us. We are a 501(c)3 organization. In October 2010 we applied for our IRS 501c3 status. Until that point, we had been self funded and continue to self fund many aspects of our organization. We understand that the reality of being able to expand and grow depends on donations and our adoption fees. Sponsorship of our rescues and donations in any form are greatly appreciated and necessary for us to continue our mission, which truly is . . 

to Save Dogs!

.... they briefly touch our lives and we seek to find them safety and give them the love they so desperately need, then once we do, while the fleeting sadness is always there because they are moving forward, we know that because THIS ONE is Home, we can now direct our attention to the next one."                                          

Lori Jones

Hope is the thing with feathers, That perches in the soul,                               And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops, at all.
-Emily Dickinson
Dogs are the things with fur,
That steal into your soul,
They hope where hope has vanished,
And never stop wishing at all.

"Jett" another success story

Now he has heard a whistle down the street

He trembles in a sort of ecstacy

Dances upon his eager, padding feet

Straining himself to hear, to feel , to see

And rushes at a call to meet the one

Who of his tiny universe is Sun


                           Lost Dog by Frances Rodman

Photographed by Angela Hinds, Jett's Mom. His story is so cool.  Jett had been at the pound for two weeks.  No-one saw him.  He just waited, and Hoped. We took him into our program, and in two months, Jett found his place in the Universe.  He's amazing and awesome.  And his new family loves him and are good to him.  He was a high risk kid, and the planets aligned for him, and for us.


We are grateful we were a part of his journey.  He is why we are in this.
You can help get our "Kids" to their "Forever Homes"!!!

Do you want to help but don't know how?  We can always use Walmart bags or other store bags, dish soap, laundry soap and bounce sheets, toys, Purina Puppy Chow, treats, plant based cleaners, paper towels, blankets and bath towels, rawhides and so much more.  We love our community's support and appreciate every single thing to help us continue our Mission -



Annie has found her forever home!!!

To All in Rescue - Keep up the Extraordinary Fight. Don't Believe for a Moment that You Cannot, or Do Not, Make a Difference. Yes, the Tide is High, but Our Force Keeps the Water from Enveloping The Ones we Can Reach.

“There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.”
