WEBINAR: "SHELTERING PETS”

10am

Time10am - 11am

Location

DescriptionFULL TITLE: "One Less Hurdle: Sheltering Survivors' Pets"

Presented by Allie Phillips, Esq., Founder of SAF-T and Director, National Center for Prosecution of Animal Abuse, National District Attorneys Association

The statistics on the connection between animal abuse and intimate partner violence are sobering. Equally concerning is the fact that many people living with violence choose not to leave their situation because they fear for the safety of their pets – and with good reason. And as anyone with pets knows, they are part of the family. The devastation of leaving a pet behind knowing they are in danger is a very real barrier to many people seeking shelter or other services. We can’t eliminate every barrier to services, but we can work to remove the hurdle of sheltering pets. In addition to accepting pets directly at shelters, there are many creative strategies shelters can use to ensure the safety of survivors’ pets while they are seeking shelter.

This webinar will provide resources and tools that you can use NOW to enable survivors to face one less hurdle to seeking shelter. All SDVA programs providing shelter are encouraged to attend this practical and informative webinar.
