Desert Haven Animal Society is an open-admission, non-profit, municipal animal shelter located 60 miles west of Las Vegas in Pahrump, Nevada. Opening its doors during the spring of 2016, DHAS' mission is to find safe, permanent homes for animals in need. DHAS is striving to maintain a no-kill status.
DHAS is a registered nonprofit 501(c)3 organization and does not receive any government funding to operate the shelter. We rely heavily on volunteer assistance and donations to provide quality care to Pahrump's homeless animals that end up within our facility. DHAS accepts all animals regardless of breed, age, space, or health, from dogs and cats to livestock and small companion critters.
DHAS strives to reduce the homeless pet population in Pahrump and surrounding areas by reuniting lost pets with their owners and by finding loving homes for adoptable stray or surrendered pets. We also seek to increase awareness on the epidemic of pet overpopulation and to promote responsible pet ownership and care.
