Sheila is home with Karma because of you!

You have given Sheila and Karma the best Christmas present ever! The gift of freedom from abuse! Karma wasn't very happy with having to be in a crate for so long on the airplane. But now, Karma is romping in the yard behind Sheila's friends efficiency apartment and playing with the next door neighbor's dog. Sheila is taking some time  to enjoy the holidays and take some time to rest and recover until the end of the year. Then she plans to hit the ground running looking for a job. The next door neighbors are retired and love Karma and have already offered to dog sit while she is at work.

Because of you Sheila and Karma are going to have a happy, abuse free life! Thank you so very much! The AODVC Team

Cassandra is safe with Logan because of you!

When we helped Cassandra escape abuse with her son Logan and return to the USA, Cassandra's abusive husband tried to force her to take Logan back to the Phillipines. Her husband had thrown Logan against a wall, would slap him and scream at him when he cried, locked them in the house for days without food and had beaten Cassandra many times.

Cassandra was terrified of what her abusive husband would do to Logan if she was forced to return him. We hired an attorney for Cassandra who was able to win her custody of Logan in the USA due to the abuse that her abusive husband had inflicted on Logan.

They are living happily with Cassandra's father and step mother. Here is a note from Cassandra:

"Logan is so happy. He used to be afraid of loud noises and men. Now he loves everyone. You saved our lives and I will be forever thankful."

Because of support from donors like you, we were able to help Cassandra & Logan.

Thank you so much from the AODVC team!
