Update on zoning request:
On January 28th the Lake County Board of County Commissioners voted against our petition to rezone to increase to 120 capacity and to install an emergency pet shelter on the property. We Thank everyone that attended the meeting and those that spoke on our behalf. We will continue to provide this much needed service to the 14 individuals we can at our location and work tirelessly to help any others find safety if we are not able to house them. Our services are important and needed. Lake County alone has seen an increase in domestic relation offenses in the past 3 years.
Letters of support can still me mailed to your County Board of Commissioners regarding the need for Haven to be able to help house more victims.
Support letters should be mailed to:
