Malisa had been communicating with a Pathways advocate for several months via email planning her escape from her abuser. She had everything arranged except for a place to keep her furbaby, Anselmo, when she arrived back to the USA.

A Pathways' advocate was able to provide Malisa with a list of shelters that had facilities for pets as well as foster homes for Anselmo.

We are happy to report that Malisa and Anselmo are back together and living safely in a home without violence!

Donors like tou make these happy endings possible. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!

After Electra's human mom Sandy escaped Belgium she tried to get into a pet friendly shelter in the USA. Unfortunately the pet friendly shelters were full. Sandy was desperate when she called Pathways for help. We were able to provide funds to foster Electra for a month while Sandy received services at the shelter. Electra received food, a medical exam and a teeth cleaning. She had a big backyard to play in two other foster dogs.

Sandy and Electra are in their own home now, safe and secure away from abuse because of donors like you. Thank you for helping us help pets escape domestic violence!

Clickitty is so happy to be safe and sound with human mom Tamra after a harrowing escape from Israel. Tamra desperately needed to escape abuse from her husband but had no way of getting Clickitty home too.

Because of donations like yours, we were able to get funds to Tamra to get Clickitty to the vet and for an in-cabin cat carrier.

They are both doing well and have settled into their violence-free life back home in the USA.

If Clickitty could talk we are sure he would be saying "You are the cat's meow"!

Thank you so much from team Pathways!

Fleur is the fur-baby of Janice. Janice needed to escape abuse from her husband in Israel. He had become physically violent, was tracking her wherebouts and accusing her of having an affair. Janice felt he may kill her one day.

Janice was able to get money from her father for an airline ticket for herself but she couldn't leave Fleur behind.

Because of donors like you, we were able to get Fleur to the veterinarian and also buy an in-cabin airline approved carrier for Fleur.

Fleur and Janice are home safe and sound and looking forward to starting over again. Thank you for helping Fleur come home!

Francis desperately needed to flee back home to the USA to escape her abusive partner in Aruba.  Francis was working at a resort when she met her boyfriend. The first few months were good but he began to get jealous, then verbally abusive, then he physically attacked her and threatened to "feed Teto to the wild dogs." Francis needed help getting her fur-baby Teto home urgently.

Because of donors like you, we were able to pay for Teto's veterinary examination, health certificate and in-cabin airline carrier.

Teto and Francis arrived safe and sound to Francis' parents house in the USA. Francis already got her previous job back and hopes to get her own place with Teto soon. She is so grateful to ne safe at home.

Thank you so much for caring about rescuing pets from domestic violence abuse.
