PetsEmpower believes in keeping pets and people together escaping domestic violence.
We are the national movement that provides information, advocacy and access to pet care resources for domestic violence survivors.
Millions of pet parents annually in the US looking to escape domestic violence are stuck in cycles of abuse. Although they want to keep their loving pet, they can't afford pet boarding and almost all human shelters prohibit pets.
"Only three percent of domestic violence shelters across the country accept pets."- American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)
"71 percent of pet-owning women entering women’s shelters reported that their batterer had injured, maimed, killed or threatened family pets for revenge or to psychologically control victims." - National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
We help domestic violence survivors transition from abuse to healing. You love animals and so do we. Let's help survivors take care of their pets, benefit from time and space to heal, reunite, and thrive!
Your gift will keep pets and people together!
