Our Thoughts and Prayers for The Friends and Family of our Treasurer, Sara Tufford and Her Recent Passing

We at Save Haven Puppy Sanctuary lost a dear friend, one of our board and founding members, Sara Tufford, who lost her fight with cancer. Words can not express how each of us feel, as Sara was a guardian and protector of so many furbabies. She absolutely had a drive and passion to save animals and was the heart of our organization. She lead the charge when we first started this rescue and was so driven and passionate that she inspired those around her to help us in our mission.

We send our deepest condolences to her husband, Ray Tufford, and to the rest of her family and friends who I know will remember Sara how we do. With a heart bigger than the moon and the drive and determination to make things happen even when it seemed impossible. Sara created our motto “We are their voices” and we will continue to rescue, rehabilitate, re-home and save as many precious babies as we can .. because that is what Sara would want from us and that is what is in our heart to do.

R.I.P. Sara … we trust you are playing with all the puppies on the other side of that rainbow bridge! Thank you for all you did for us and Safe Haven, we love and miss you!


Well if you need to get your puppy fix, then you came to the right place!  Check out our Recommended Websites page to see where we buy our Antlers for our puppies to chew on instead of the typical rawhides.

Welcome to the hub of Safe Haven Puppy Sanctuary, we are based out of the Cookeville / Crossville, TN area.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit so all donations are tax deductible (if you itemize deductions).

Right now we are a foster-based program, looking for our ideal facility in Crossville, TN. If you have a building/home with multiple rooms (concrete or tile floors preferred) with at least 2 acres for rent (cheap), please contact us!

We are always looking for new local foster homes to help us with our rescue mission. Have you always wondered if you could foster? Well let me tell you, yes you can! Check out our Volunteer Opportunities page for more information on how you can take a homeless animal into your home and be a part of their journey to their forever home.

Please take some time and look at our pages. We just got started, so some pages will take time to get fully “updated”, but we are working on them!

We can only do what we do because people make the choice to help by donating and we appreciate every donation, every dollar goes to the puppies and their journey to finding their forever homes. So, as much as we hate to beg, PLEASE DONATE TO THE PUPPIES, by checking out our Donate Page. Remember, donations are tax deductible! We welcome corporate sponsorships and re-occurring monthly donations!

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget you can follow us on Facebook too!

Please always make the choice to spay / neuter your pets, for their sake and yours!
