Amber Watson, WMDT TV, interviews Safe Haven No-Kill Animal Sanctuary’s Executive Director Anne Gryczon. Gracie, the little pit bull mix in Anne’s lap was saved from being killed at Kent County SPCA. Safe Haven has been pulling dogs from Kent County SPCA since January 2011 when the new Delaware Shelter Standards law became effective. The law requires that before any shelter kills an animal, rescue groups must be notified so they can decide whether to pull the animal. Safe Haven has been pulling dogs every week – old, sick, wounded, shy and so-called “aggressive” dogs. The dogs are placed in foster homes or boarded in kennels until they are adopted or transported to No-Kill shelters in northern New England. When Safe Haven opens in Fall 2011, there will be cage-free space for 150 dogs and 250 cats.
