"Fostering and Reuniting Pets. Empowering Domestic Violence Survivors. Saving Lives."
We are a nonprofit foundation and umbrella organization giving courageous domestic violence survivors a positive alternative preserving pet relationships at risk, through no fault of owners.

We promote a seamless, smooth, and simple process allowing domestic violence survivors and pets to enter safe spaces as fast as possible to keep the pet bond intact. We leverage each short-term foster agency's best capabilities. We ensure peace of mind their loving pet is taken care of and provide reunification, positive health outcomes, transformative community service, and corporate social impact. We spread love throughout the community via pet fostering. We also provide volunteers and funding for a stable source of income to short-term pet fostering organizations to increase capacity.

We accept strictly domestic violence cases and require a domestic violence advocate to fill out the "find pet fostering" button above.

"Up to 65 percent of domestic violence victims are unable to escape their abusers because they are concerned about what will happen to their pets when they leave." (Carlisle-Frank, Frank and Nielsen, 2004)

Vision

A world where 1 million American domestic violence survivors preserve healing pet relationships on their journey to freedom. Loving pets cease to serve as barrier to entry to domestic violence shelters. Survivors escape domestic violence quickly and develop lives of dignity and choice.
