With your help Jillian was able to get the vet certificates she needed and the crates to get Ono and Chewie home from Mexico!
They are staying with Jillian's parents until Jillian gets a job and her own place. Chewie is very happy as the only dog in the house. Ono has to share the space with another feline, Whisper, so he is taking a bit longer to get settled.
We truly appreciate your generosity in getting Chewie and Ono home!
We also wanted to let you know that the name of our organization is changing to Pathways To Safety International. We feel this name better describes the work we do around the world to help American victims of interpersonal and gender based violence abroad and their pets.
Thank you so much for supporting our mission!
Because of your generous donations, Jackson had his first counseling session this week to help him overcome the trauma of the abuse he suffered from his father in Italy. Sarah let us know that Jackson really likes his therapist.
"He came out of the session smiling. I don't see Jackson smile very often any more. You have given me such a beautiful gift and so much hope."
Thank you so much for helping Jackson!
Since the #Metoo movement began, we have seen an overall increase of 30% in American sexual assault victims overseas needing services. We are also experiencing a surge in services to young men and women who identify with the LGBTQ community.
The federal government recently discontinued funding our sexual assault program, choosing to only continued funding services to domestic violence victims.
This loss of funding is devastating.
If you are thinking of donating again this holiday season, please consider donating to help Rick who was sexually assaulted in Nepal.
Thank you for helping vulnerable LGBTQ youth abroad in the aftermath of a sexual assault!
