Protecting Pets in Domestic Violence Crisis

Nov 21, 2012

Amy & Scout are Home for the Holidays!

Pets are vulnerable victims of domestic violence
Pets are vulnerable victims of domestic violence

When Amy needed to flee a very abusive husband in Ireland, she was afraid she would not be able to get Scout home with her. Scout had been kicked and hit by her husband and she knew if she left Scout behind, something even worse would happen.

Because of support such as yours, we were able to pay the fees for Scout to fly home on the same plane as Amy.

Thank you for recognizing that pets are often the most vulnerable victims!

We also wanted to let you know about our Gift For Good on the Global Giving website: a beautiful handmade pillow cover from Jaipur, India to consider for your holiday shopping.

Thank you for all you do to help pets in need! Warmest wishes, Paula
