Paws For Courage - enabling more victims of domestic violence to become survivors.
Paws For Courage's mission is to assist those living in domestic violence situations by providing temporary safe havens for their pets, enabling them to leave their abusers sooner.
As many as 48% of domestic violence survivors stay in an abusive relationship due to fear of what will happen to their pets once they leave. Abusers will hurt and even kill pets in order to gain control over and intimidate their victims.
It is our mission to greatly reduce this percentage and enable more victims to become survivors.
Many domestic violence shelters do not allow pets or do not have options for the pets of those they assist.
We provide that option.
