The Safe Pets Program
Ensuring pets and people rebuild together
The Safe Pets Program was formed to provide temporary care for vulnerable animals whose owners are facing enormous challenges as victims of domestic violence or homelessness. These owners and their pets have endured a lot of hardship and their bond runs deep. We are committed to making sure that no pet owner in our community is set back along their road to recovery because of a pet they refuse to abandon.
Most women’s shelters cannot provide care for the pets of owners. And many owners refuse to leave without their animals for fear of their animal’s life so we partner with Safe Passage in DeKalb to provide temporary shelter for the pets of the women they help.
Getting your feet back on the ground after experiencing homelessness is a long, hard road. It is nearly impossible for dog owners. If you do find a job, where do you leave your dog all day while you go to work when you don’t have a home? Again, we’re here to help. We work with Hope Haven to provide temporary shelter for the pets of the clients they are assisting who are on the road to settling in to pet friendly accommodations.
If you’d like more information about this program, contact Jon at 815-758-2457 ext. 102 or email@example.com.
All pet food, supplies and veterinary care is provided for free of charge!
