"The S.A.F.E. House shelter hotline receives approximately 175 crisis calls a month. There has been an increase in the number of callers that need to board their animal. Our partnership with the Alliance foundation has given us the opportunity to board, vaccinate and pay for any food or supplies our clients' pet may need. We recently were able to help a client and her cat leave their abusive home life. When she called, she was confused, scared, and felt she had nowhere to go. After arriving at the shelter, the staff drove the client and her cat to an animal hospital in Henderson where the cat received wonderful care and attention. The client was able to have a good rest that night knowing that her cat was taken care of. Since we have had the support from the Alliance foundation, we are now able to help more survivors of domestic violence and their pets get the help and support they need to be safe."
