Off the Beaten Track in Shasta Cascade

The farther north, east or west you go from Redding, the sparser the population and the wilder the country. With seven national forests, three mountain ranges, a national park, a national monument, two national wilderness areas, 15 state parks and countless lakes, the eight-county Shasta Cascade region serves up freedom and adventure for you and your dog at every turn. Dog-friendly hotels and resorts dot a region that encompasses Plumas, Lassen, Modoc, Tehama, Siskyou, Trinity, Shasta and Butte counties. A few suggestions for getting acquainted: Read more.

Haven Humane Society 2013

Since we last checked in with Haven Humane Society, they've opened up the spacious new Anne Morgan Adoption Center, which is, says rescue coordinator Spenser Curran, a night-and-day improvement over the old facility that housed the Redding area's homeless animals. Prospective adopters love the spacious, welcoming environment; the cats now have their own kitty condo, and the dogs really appreciate the heated floors (hey, it gets cold at night up there!).

Haven Humane Society 2012

As its name suggests, Haven Humane Society has been providing a safe place to land for the Redding area's stray, abandoned, and otherwise homeless animals since 1952. Currently under construction, its new Anne Morgan Adoption Center, due to open this fall, will make things even better by doubling the shelter's capacity to house dogs and cats waiting for their new families.   One of those dogs is Alex here. This handsome Lab/shepherd boy is around a year old and a graduate of Haven Humane's Camp Love-a-Pet, a popular summer program in which local kids pick up dog skills by training a shelter dog. An active young guy, Alex has some history as an escape artist, so his new home should probably have both secure fencing and people whose lifestyle will include him and keep him busy.

Haven Humane Society

Haven Humane Society has served Northern California's Redding area since 1952, caring for homeless, unwanted and neglected pets. Its main goal has been to find them forever homes through public adoptions and animal rescue groups, but its spay-neuter clinics and innovative programs such as Camp Love-a-Pet, which teaches local young people to care for and train shelter animals, help in many other ways as well.
