The Story

At Safe Futures, our primary goal is to ensure the safety of the people who come to us for help—and that includes their family members. We understand pets are family too, and we’re committed to providing clients with temporary, confidential shelter for their animals for a period of time while the victim transitions to safety. 



We are raising funds to pilot a program that will help people leaving an abusive situation find a safe place for their pets. These funds will help us #ProtectOurPets by:

* Creating a “seed fund” for necessary medical care, routine or otherwise;
* Providing collars and tags to help protect the confidentiality of the pets in our care;
* Providing toys, food and litter for our foster homes; and
* Assisting with other start-up costs.

Domestic violence victims face many barriers on the road to safety. One major barrier is concern for their pets, who are often left with the abuser simply because many shelters cannot accommodate them. As a result, people remain in unsafe situations. 

In fact, according to the American Humane Society, between 25% and 40% of battered women are unable to escape abusive situations because they worry about what will happen to the pets they leave behind.



Thank you for your support and for believing in our mission.
