Underground Railroad Inc. shelters pets of domestic violence victims because pets are family too!
Did you know?
• Up to 40% of domestic violence victims are unable to escape their abusers because they worry about what will happen to their pets when they leave.
• 55% of domestic violence victims and their children view their pets as important sources of emotional support.
• Only 12% of domestic violence programs provide shelter for pets.
The pet accommodations Paws 4 Hope are available for residents of the URR Safety and Resource Center. Underground Railroad, Inc. is the only provider of shelter and services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking in Saginaw County.
Domestic violence affects every member of the family. To volunteer for the Paws 4 Hope committee or to offer donations, please email [email protected].
