Please help Cody keep Ollie!

A microproject by Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center


We are currently in the process of helping Cody and his mother Chelsea flee Australia and come back to the USA. If Cody can't bring his cat Ollie back he will be devastated. With this project we will be able to fly Ollie back home with Chelsea and Cody. We need to get the veterinary vaccinations, the certificate, a crate and the cost to fly Ollie home with his family.

Chelsea needs to escape abuse in Australia but she knows she can't leave Ollie behind. Cody is so attached to Ollie it would be horrible for him. With this project we will be able to bring Ollie back home to the USA with his family.


Chelsea, Cody & Ollie will be able to live free of abuse back home in the USA. They are going to live with Chelsea's family until she is able to get a job and get back on her feet.

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.
