Domestic Violence & Crisis Assistance
KHS can offer discreet sheltering for pets during a time of domestic crisis. This referral-based service helps people with pets escape abusive or dangerous living situations.
Victims of domestic violence are less likely to leave an abuser if pets are in danger.
Abusers often threaten and harm household pets to hold emotional control over victims.
Pets are abused to punish victims for things that have upset the abuser.
Working with the YWCA and other referring organizations, KHS can arrange safe and discreet housing for pets belonging to domestic violence victims to encourage them to leave abusers
By eliminating the threat of violence against a beloved pet, victims of domestic violence can get the help they need.
Pets are reunited after safe housing has been secured, at no cost to the pet owner.
