(PAWS) Program - Pets and Women to Safety
The Link between animal abuse, child abuse, elder abuse and domestic violence has been well documented, and the Animal Welfare Society is doing something about it! Animals are abused in 88% of the families where violence is an issue. Violence and neglect is a worldwide concern that needs to be taken seriously, so that our children and animals grow up in a safe and loving world.
By partnering with Caring Unlimited we give victims of domestic violence a safe place for their pets when they enter the Caring Unlimited women's shelter.
If you need help or know someone who needs help, call Caring Unlimited at 1-800-239-7298 or visit their website.
