Paws Together ™To Help The Defenseless! Pets of domestic violence victims need our help to ensure their safety and security is guaranteed while their owners get the assistance needed.
Please join us as we help the defenseless and voiceless animals of domestic abuse.
Data shows that 85% of domestic violence shelters cannot accommodate pets
Up to 76% of animal cruelty in the home occurs in front of children
Over two-thirds of pets living in a domestic violence situation are also victims of abuse
Data shows that 48% of domestic violence victims delay leaving their abusers because of concern over their pets
As many as 25% of victims report they have returned to an abusive partner out of concern for their pets
The Whiskers, Paws and Love Team started our Paws Together™ campaign to bring awareness to the sad fact that many animals are adversely impacted by domestic abuse.
Although some victims are lucky enough to have a safe place to shelter their animals when seeking help, many victims may delay leaving their situation due to a lack of understanding because of a language barrier.
The Whiskers, Paws and Love Team brings a diverse set of volunteers that can speak multiple languages as well as represent the concerned public population, which many times can help a person feel confident their loved animal will be safe and secure as they seek help.
Help us help the defenseless and be their voice!
