Martha Needs Help Paying For Sylvia's Trip Home

$250 $0
Raised Remaining

We wanted to let you know that Martha and Sylvia made it home together, safely, because of you! Sylvia was all Martha had and you made it possible for them to be together.

Martha has some challenges ahead of her as an older abuse victim who has been outside of the USA for 15 years, but with Sylvia by her side, she is strong and confident that everything will work out. Luckily there are a lot of services available to Martha that she is accessing.

Martha can't thank you enough for helping her get her precious cat Sylvia home safely in the US.

Protecting Pets in Domestic Violence Crisis
Often times, it is not only a spouse and children that are abused in domestic violence situations, but also pets. Pets are often abused and used to manipulate a victim from leaving an abusive household. AODVC provides international danger to safety relocations for pets so that they can leave the abusive situation with mom and kids and live a life free from violence. project reportread updates from the field
