Our beautiful, 85 acres sanctuary is nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains outside Seattle, Washington. The animals we rescue come from hoarding houses, law enforcement seizures, factory farms and slaughterhouse “dead piles” or because they were simply tossed aside as “unwanted”.
SAFETY: We make each animal who comes through our sanctuary gates a promise, “Now you are safe.” And until we find them families of their own, our sanctuary becomes their home. Our farmed animals enjoy green pastures and fresh swimming ponds. And we try to mimic home environments/routines as much as possible for our dog and cat residents.
LOVE: Our dedicated Caregiver staff includes species leads who have experience and training working with their particular animal types. These Caregivers know our animals better than anyone and are able to provide specialized care and enrichment based on each animal’s unique needs.
HEALING: Animals receive veterinary care in Ruth’s Healing Barn, thanks to funding from a generous family foundation. This facility allows us to provide medical care for our sanctuary residents and efficiently intake animals from larger rescues, providing the urgent vet care they need while they can be monitored in temporary living quarters.
SECOND CHANCES: Once rescued animals are given a clean bill of health, they join the rest of our sanctuary residents and start making new friends. That is always a happy day for everyone here at Pasado’s Safe Haven as we know it marks a turning point in the animal’s journey to complete healing.
Pasado’s Safe Haven is honored to have received full accreditation from Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). GFAS is the only globally recognized organization providing standards for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries. Accreditation acknowledges Pasado’s Safe Haven’s exemplary record and innovative methods for ensuring animals we rescue get the highest standard of care.
