Voices serves people (adults and children) who are impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. Last fiscal year Voices served 534 adults and 321 children. When domestic violence victims with pets consider fleeing abusive homes and there is no safe place to house their pets, they have little choice but: (1) to remain in their homes and subject themselves, their children and their pets to continued violence, (2) to flee with children and pets and become homeless, or (3) to flee and leave their pets behind. Because victims understand the extent of the harm that their abusers will likely inflict upon their pets, if left behind, many victims simply remain in violent relationships. By providing a safe environment for both victims and their pets, Voices will be able to provide increased options and safety for people experiencing domestic violence and their pets This funding will allow them to offering pet-housing options helps families by removing a barrier to safety and allowing pets and people to escape abuse together. Multiple choices in how to implement pet-housing ensure that there is a solution for every domestic violence shelter that includes partnerships with the Animal shelter and local Veterinaries. Funds would be used to purchase needed equipment (crates, outside shelters), and supplies such as food. In addition funds, will be used to off set the costs of sheltering at the Human Society, if needed, and medical care with local veterinaries.
