A safe haven for pets of victims of domestic abuse.
Pets and their owners need a safe place when seeking shelter from domestic violence. PAWS and Community Safety Network help protect people and their pets from violence with a custom pet facility on the CSN campus – one of only 27 domestic violence shelters in the U.S. that accepts pets. SafePAWS offers victims the option of bringing their pet(s) with them to the shelter when fleeing an abusive situation.
Studies show a clear link between domestic violence, child abuse, and abuse of animals. With more than 70% of women entering a shelter reporting that their pet is also in danger, our SafePAWS shelter gives these women help and safety, and assures that their animal companion can be with them.
