A 'Safe Haven' for Domestic Violence Victims & Their Pets

There is a clear link between animal abuse and domestic violence or violence towards humans. Abuse towards an animal is a major red flag for potential violence towards humans, but what does a pet own person trapped in a domestic violence situation do?

American Humane Pets and Women’s Shelters Program, or PAWS, has realized the need for women’s shelters that allow pets, and is helping to end domestic violence and animal abuse by providing a safe haven for domestic violence victims and their four legged friends.

I encourage you to watch this video and learn more about this amazing program.
