Description

 Nearly 50% of pet-owning women will delay leaving an abusive home because they are afraid for the lives of their pets. Help victims and their pets safely escape abuse together.

Domestic abuse victims shouldn't have to make the terrible choice between leaving to save themselves and their children and leaving their pets behind with an abusive partner. The solution? Create safe spaces where domestic violence victims, their children, and their pets can all go together.

While there are about 1,500 shelters for victims of domestic abuse in the United States, very few can accommodate animals. This leaves women in a position where they feel trapped - either remain in a threatening situation, or leave their pets behind.

That's where Greater Good Charities' Jackson Galaxy Project comes in. We are combining Jackson’s skills at designing comfortable indoor environments for pets with Rescue Rebuild’s expertise in renovating animal spaces to retrofit women's shelters to be able to accept animals. It only costs $15,000 to transform a domestic violence shelter into a safe haven for victims and their pets.

Help empower victims to save themselves, their children, and their pets. Just $10 provides safe space for pet victims.



The Harsh Reality

  • 88% of households where children are physically abused also have pets that are abused or neglected.
  • Over 71% of women entering domestic violence shelters reported their partner had threatened, injured, or killed the family pet.
  • Abusive partners who hurt animals use more violent forms of abuse toward women and children.

During a time in their lives when domestic violence victims have already given up so much, let's help by keeping their animals and families together.
