Pawsome Pets

Imagine facing the difficult decision to escape abuse and leave your beloved animal behind. It can be an impossible choice.

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence estimates 40% of victims delay leaving an abusive partner because they’re worried about the well-being of their pets.

Sweet dogs and cats with their humans are a familiar sight at our shelter, but the facility isn’t a good fit for every pet. Our advocates are committed to safety planning for animals and providing options for furry friends to thrive.

Partnerships with the Humane Society, Animal Care & Control, and regional veterinarians help with medical needs. Confidential fosters can often care for pets while the lives of their humans stabilize after surviving abuse. Love for your animals should never be a barrier to fleeing abuse.
