SafeHaven Looks to Open Dover Facility

DOVER, Del.- Earlier this year, SafeHaven Animal Sanctuary, based out of Georgetown, took over dog control services in Kent County.

The group is now looking to open a facility in Dover on a 5-acre parcel of land in east Dover.

Aaron Layton works near the proposed site and he thinks a Dover facility would be convenient for people who lose their dogs in Kent County.

"That's a lot of land to take up with one cause," he said. "But I think it is beneficial because we already have one in Georgetown but it gives people more convenience to find their dog."

Anthony Ditchkus agrees and says the possible move by SafeHaven will benefit people as well as dogs.

"Maybe it will bring some jobs up here," he said. "That will be helpful."

But that's not how Bill Holler sees things. His graphics company is down the road from the proposed site. He has nothing against dogs or animals but feels the land could be better used in other ways.

"It should be left alone and used for farming, because that's diminishing here in the state," he said.
