Safe For Pets Too
A Program to Shelter Animals Affected by Family Violence
We provide temporary emergency boarding and care for at-risk animals belonging to individuals looking for shelter from family violence.
Safe for Pets Too
Why do we need a place to shelter pets?
Some abusive partners will hurt an animal to frighten or punish others in the family. In violent homes anyone can be a target – including a beloved pet. When a woman fears for the well-being of her pet, she may even delay getting help for herself.
In an emergency, when safety is at risk, call 911.
How do I get my animal back?
At the end of the 30 days, the transition house or family violence outreach staff will arrange with SFPT for you to pick up your animal at a designated location.
