PET FRIENDLY shelters

We believe that pets help heal, provide love, and bring comfort. It's our heart to have our shelters safe for people and pets. We need fencing and pet houses.

A fundraising campaign for Advocates for Women

Advocates for women is a safe place for women and children; victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and trafficking. We provide resources, advocacy, childcare, shelters, and much more.

Our heart to serve our clients better is to make our shelters more pet friendly. To do that we need to add additional fencing in our back yard for the pets, purchase quality pet houses, and have pet food/supplies stocked.

We believe that animals bring comfort, love and even healing. Having pets be able to stay with our clients in our shelter will help them cope with the hardships of their situations.
