Any items are always appreciated other than food. Due to dietary issues, lifespan of the food etc. changing food from what they are accustomed to is a slow process. Therefore we do not take food as a donation but any other dog related items is appreciated. But a cash donation helps the most as it can be used for medical, food, care and all the hidden costs that go with caring for those rescued. Donations to the auction is very welcomed!

Yes, please send mail to rescue@havanesefanciers.com for details. An online form will be created soon.

We ask for a donation of at least $100 to cover our bare costs. More is appreciated!

Foster Homes
From time to time we need people who are willing to take on a Havanese in need for a short time before they are placed in their new forever home. Below are some frequently asked questions surrounding fostering a rescued Havanese.

The average stay for one of our Havanese is 3 weeks to 1 month.  However, some Havanese can be with us for a long time.

We will provide information regarding introducing animals to resident pets.  If we are unable to resolve the issues, we will remove the Havanese as soon as we are able. We offer full support in helping you. You are not alone.

 Decisions are made by rescue on a case by case issue depending on needs but rescue pays all costs.

 Rescue provides their food, supplies, and medical care.

Provided that we have not already promised the dog or puppy into a home and you are approved, you may adopt your foster Havanese.
