Help Rescue Tammy and her kittens Kala & Lila

A microproject by Pathways to Safety International
Help Rescue Tammy and her kittens Kala & Lila


Tammy moved to India two years ago to volunteer with a charity. She is also a professional photographer. Even though Tammy lives on meager means, last year she adopted two stray cats. She began dating a man she met in Bangalore. When he became abusive recently she broke off the relationship. He is stalking her and he has threatened her with acid throwing. Tammy called us and wants to return to the USA as soon as possible with Kala & Lila.

Tammy lives in fear of acid throwing from her former boyfriend. He is well connected and she feels she must leave India to be safe. She wants to bring the two cats she adopted in India, Kala & Lila. With this project we will get the veterinary certificates and a crate for Kala & Lila, and the cost of the ticket for Tammy and fees for Kala & Lila. Tammy is going to live with her grandmother when she comes home and will continue her career as a professional photographer.


Tammy will be able to come home with Kala & Lila and be safe from stalking and acid throwing. She will be able to live her life back at home.

Long-Term Impact

We will provide services to 150 American victims with pets in approximately 50 countries while they are fleeing violence. Our goal is to have all of them reach safety with their pets and live their lives without violence in their homes.
