Reported Police Activity Fuels Concern At Safe Haven

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del. - Controversy continues to surround Safe Haven.

The no-kill shelter in Georgetown is officially closing its doors in about two weeks, and the focus has been getting the remaining dogs at the facility adopted. WMDT received multiple calls and Facebook posts from residents concerned about the safety of the dogs after State Troopers were reportedly on the scene earlier today.

Thursday night, the shelter responded to these concerns on their Facebook page, saying:

"We were able to place an overwhelming majority of the dogs through transfer to local partners, adoptions as well as relocation out-of-state. Today, remaining dogs on-site were transported to shelters and rescue groups where they can be made available for adoption. Some dogs, due to severe behavior issues, were such a threat to other animals or humans, that they were unsuitable for adoption. Some dogs were humanely euthanized. We are grateful for all of the lives that were saved and the support that we received during this difficult time."
