Mission Statement

To find forever loving homes for abused, abandoned and neglected animals


Ahimsa Haven was incorporated in 1999 as a nonprofit no-kill animal rescue group. Our mission is to find good homes for abused, abandoned, homeless and unwanted domestic animals. Ahimsa is a term from an eastern religion that means "To do no harm, in thought or deed, to any living creature." We are raising money to build a shelter in Winchendon, MA to provide emergency medical care for animals in need, along with routine medical care for animals in our foster care program. Every penny we raise goes to the animals - no one gets a salary!

Would you recommend Ahimsa Haven Animal Rescue?

Lack of communication system among volunteers. Was lead to believe a dog was available for adoption when, in fact, it was not. When I expressed my disappointment, frustration and suggestion that they fix their communication system, on their Facebook page, I was met with accusations and insinuations. Not a single shred of SINCERE apology or regret this mix up had occurred. Then they deleted all messages on their Facebook regarding this issue, including messages my family and friends wrote, in support of us, along with blocking all of those people from commenting on their page. I have never seen such unprofessional behavior from a business in all my life. My daughter's heart was broken & I told them this and suggested they fix things so they don't break anyone else's heart. They did not show one ounce of genuine regret. We knew we only had a chance at the dog, but finding out we NEVER had a chance at all, broke our hearts. Demand correct information if you use this shelter.
