Directory of Safe Havens for Animals™ Programs

Those fleeing domestic violence may bring pets to these shelters

  • Many domestic violence victims are reluctant to leave home if it means leaving a pet with the abuser. iStockphoto

If you are concerned about your pet's safety, check our list for a shelter near you that allows pets.

If you don't see a program listed in your area, contact your local domestic violence shelter, animal shelter, veterinarian, or boarding kennel to see if they have a Safe Haven for animals program or can provide temporary care for your pet.

If you know of a Safe Haven program not listed here, please email us with the program's telephone number, email address, and contact person's name.

The HSUS has verified the accuracy of all the Safe Haven listings below; additional listings (not verified by The HSUS) are available at awionline.org/safe-havens.
