One less hurdle: Women’s shelter allows victims to escape with their pets

November 9, 2014jeremygoldmanRandomNo Comments

Wow, these are sobering statistics: 48% of women in the U.S. choose to stay in abusive relationships because they don’t want to leave pets behind. Only 2% of shelters in the U.S. have¬†any program available to take pets into account. Great to see that there’s some hope that more programs will be inclusive of pets – and helping women get the support they need – in the near future.
