This beautiful Percheron gelding was rescued from the slaughter pipeline in remembrance of Teresa Lynn "Bunny" Fittin, who went missing at age 18. She has not been found. Haven is a gentle giant and his deformed ears add to his adorableness. Haven is currently in a training program as an outreach advocate for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all the darkness."
- Desmond Tutu,
Gemstone: Light Aqua & Gray Agate - these are calming and soothing stones that bring comfort to those that have suffered any trauma. It is said that wearing these stones stabilizes emotions and improves focus.
Haven has been honored as an advocate for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He is currently in training so that he can best use his skills to help others. His good-natured and easygoing personality makes him an outstanding mascot for the rescue and the NCMEC.
Fun at the Farm
Haven has had fun being our rescued unicorn and stands quietly for many hugs. Although his ears are deformed he has no problems hearing or posing for cameras. He loves treats!
Best of Friends
Haven's best friend is Anastasia. Before Anastasia arrived at the rescue, she was badly abused and neglected - causing her to completely distrust humans. Haven has become her guardian and they are inseparable. Haven escorts her everywhere and we're sure they've swapped some incredible life stories.
Haven was pulled out of the slaughter pipeline through a lot of teamwork. Here he is like a huge puppy enjoying the ride. The rig stopped to close his window quickly after, but the look on his face was priceless.
