 We Vow to Keep Families & Beloved Pets Together


Pets aren't immune to domestic violence.  Abusers often threaten, injure or kill their partners' or children's pets as a means of control or revenge.  When a woman decides to flee a violent relationship, she'll be able to take her pet to our shelter.  This is our dream - we need your help to make it a reality.  Learn more here.
