Find a Domestic Abuse Shelter for You and Your Pet
One in three women and one in four men experience some form of domestic abuse in their lifetimes, but only 15% of domestic violence shelters accept pets. In addition, over 70% of women in domestic violence shelters report their abuser threatened, injured or killed a pet. As a result, nearly half of domestic abuse survivors delay leaving because they do not have a place that will accept both them and their pets.
Purina recognized that victims may not leave their abusive situation because of threats to their pets. They are doing something about it by funding the Purple Leash Project.
