More often than not, their are dogs in residence at the Nest Domestic Violence Shelter. Victims of domestic violence may have witnessed their partner abusing their pet or may fear that in their absence their pet is abused, so more and more victims leave with their pets.
More and more victims of domestic violence now show up at the shelter with their animals. Abusers often harm pets to control their partners. The Nest is meeting the increased needs by making the shelter pet friendly. By 2014, we hope to have completed building kennels in our rear courtyard. Until then, any pet supplies that you have would be greatly appreciated. Pet supplies may include dishes, toys, leashes, collars, kennels, food, etc.
