Keeping domestic violence survivors and their pets together

PetsEmpower is the national movement that provides information, advocacy and access to pet care resources for domestic violence survivors.

Do you need a safe home for your pet while in a crisis situation? Don't put yourself or your pet at risk. Foster your pet while you get help!
