Merciful Maiden Critter Haven

Merciful Maiden Critter Haven is a haven for many types of birds and animals and is located in the Klamath Falls, Oregon area. Merciful Maiden Critter Haven tries to rescue as many animals as possible from slaughter, canned hunts, abuse and neglect. For example, in 2007 we rescued 14 llamas from certain death. The llamas were being sold at auction and were going to be bought by a man to be used for a llama shoot. Fortunately, Merciful Maiden Critter Haven was able to buy the llamas and bring them to the Haven. More have since been rescued and some have been relocated.

Every day there are calls to help goats, kids, sheep, lambs, birds, llamas, dogs, cats, rabbits, and donkeys. If you are able to assist by making a donation towards the care of the animals at the Haven, please do so. 100% of all donations are used to feed and care for the animals. To learn more, click the menu items, above and right, and follow our blog, below.

Please help the animals by making a generous donation.
