Domestic Violence Shelters and Pets: Creating a Pet-Friendly Program that Works for You
This presentation will discuss the link between domestic violence and animal abuse, the importance of the human-animal bond and how to create pet-friendly housing programs. Participants will learn about different models for pet-friendly housing, the importance of working with their communities and about RedRover’s domestic violence grants. RedRover is a national animal welfare nonprofit focused on bringing animals out of crisis and strengthening the human-animal bond through emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance and humane education. Their domestic violence assistance program allows domestic violence survivors and their pets to escape abuse together so they can begin the healing process together. RedRover’s Safe Housing program provides financial assistance, guidance and support to enable domestic violence shelters to create on- and off-site space to house beloved pets of survivors. When pet-friendly spaces are not available at a shelter, their Safe Escape program provides grants for safely boarding a survivor’s pet up to 90 days, while a survivor is in shelter.
