The ASPCA estimates that up to 48% of women stay in abusive situations longer because they fear for the safety and well-being of their pets. Additionally, pets that live in domestic violence situations are 11 times more likely to be abused as well. Unfortunately, because very few domestic violence shelters can accommodate pets, victims face the terrible decision of either leaving their pets in a dangerous environment, or giving up their pets. Brighter Tomorrows is acutely aware of this gap in domestic violence services and the emotional toll it can take on our clients.
Through our Purple Paw Project, Brighter Tomorrows is able to accept pets coming into the Grand Prairie emergency safe shelter with their humans.
You can help us help them by donating cash, gift cards, pet supplies and food, and your time to care for these beloved animals.
