Help get Roxy home!

A microproject by Pathways to Safety International
Help get Roxy home!


Roxy is the beloved family dog of an American woman, Beth, and her two children, Sarah 8 and Jason 10, who are escaping domestic violence from Albania and fleeing back to the USA for safety. Beth can get a repatriation loan from the American Embassy, but they won't include shipping costs for Roxy. If Roxy is left behind, Sarah & Jason will be devastated and Roxy will be abused. Please help get Roxy home by donating the cost for a shipping crate and to ship her home to her family.

Domestic violence victims are often forced to leave their pets behind when they flee violent homes. This is devastating to the family and also exposes the pet to abuse when left alone with the violent individual in the home who is now even angrier that his American wife and children have escaped and gone back to the USA. Roxy has already been abused by the violent man in the home just like Beth, Sarah & Jason. Roxy is an innocent victim too. She needs your help to get home.


By being able to bring Roxy home, Beth, Sarah & Jason will be able to keep their beloved family pet with them and Roxy will be rescued from further abuse.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help one family free themselves of domestic violence with their pet Roxy, stop the abuse of Roxy and keep them together as they rebuild a healthy life away from domestic violence.
