Oracle is home!

Oracle is just one of the pets you have helped so far this year escape violence in a foreign country and come home with their human mom.

Oracle is the beloved Calico kitty of Marcie. Marcie adopted Oracle in Spain in 2013 when she began teaching English. Marcie met a man from Spain, fell in love, and he moved into her apartment last last year. As the months past he became very abusive towards Marcie. Marcie called AODVC and we safety planned getting Marcie and Oracle back to the USA safely.

Because of donations like yours, we were able to pay for Oracle's veterinary certifications, a crate for Oracle on the plane and food. Oracle and Marcie are living with Marcie's parents. Oracle is slowly adjusting to life in the USA.

Thank you for believing in protecting pets in violent homes! The AODVC team.

Ten Families Received Food & Shelter Because Of You!

We can't thank you enought for donating to provide food and shelter for victims fleeing violence! In the first quarter of this year ten families received emergency shelter and food while escaping very dangerous, abusive homes.

Rita and Alex were one of those families. Rita called us in the middle of the night. Her four year old son, Alex, and she ran out of their home in England when her husband took a knife from the kitchen drawer and threatened them. We were able to get Rita into a hotel for two nights plus food for her and Alex while our case manager, Lisa, worked with Rita to get her home safely to the USA.

Without your donations, we would not have had the ability to get Rita and Alex, and nine other battered mothers and their children into an immediate safe place.

Thank  you again for your support of our mission and battered Americans in foreign countries. The AODVC Team.

You Helped Maya Come Home With Clover!

Last month we were finally ablel to get Maya and Clover back to the USA! We would not have been successful without your help. Maya's husband became even more controlling after the new year making it more difficult for us to help Maya escape from France and get back to the USA with Clover.

The abuse was well documented and we are confident that the Hague Convention will not be an issue in their case.

Maya said this in an email:

"Part of me can't believe we made it. I can't thank you enough. I don't know what I would have done without you."

We want to thank you for believing in our mission and for helping Maya and Clover come home! The AODVC Team
