Dog in Action



How you can help:

  • Foster a pet in need of a temporary home

If you have the space and time, please consider adding yourself to our list of potential fosters for pets of domestic violence victims. Pets come in all shapes and sizes - everything from hamsters to dogs to reptiles to horses. They all need a special place to stay while their human companion heals. Please consider opening your home and heart.

  • Volunteer at a local shelter

Whether at a domestic violence shelter or at an animal care organization, volunteers make program growth possible!

  • Donate to a shelter to support growth of animal care programs

Many shelters are limited based on funding. If you do not have the time or space to volunteer or foster, please consider donating to a local shelter so that they can continue their good work for the community. With additional funding, it may be possible for a shelter to develop their own program to assist domestic violence victims with pets.
