Estimates suggest that a quarter of women experience domestic abuse and at least two British women are killed each week. Family pets are often used to control and manipulate victims trapping in abusive relationships.
Animal Safe Haven is a service desperately needed in Wales. We support victims of domestic abuse by temporarily caring for their pets while they access a refuge and begin to rebuild their lives. Each animal is referred to our Animal Safe Haven where they receive a full health check, vet treatment if required, and a fosterer to provide a temporary loving home.
