Safe Harbor Farm

SHF is a 61-acre private 501c3 rescue & rehabilitation center with eight core volunteers. Although we care for 20-30 animals on a daily basis and we occasionally have dogs available for adoption, our primary mission is to keep good dogs in good homes through practical, life-changing training in canine (and human) behavior.

Got a DOG
"I can't believe how quickly I was able to turn things around...simply by changing a few things I was doing! SMILE! discusses human and canine behavior, and that's what makes it so helpful. HIGHLY recommend!
