Women In Distress, through a unique partnership with the Humane Society of Broward County, is the only South Florida domestic abuse certified facility with an approved Pet Shelter. This unique partnership allows us to ensure survivors’ pets (dogs and cats) receive proper nutrition, physical exams, and vaccines.

Thank You to Our Generous Founding Supporters

Thanks to our founding donors, survivors fleeing abusive and dangerous situations can now be alleviated from the worry of leaving their dogs and cats behind. Survivors can now bring along their dogs and cats and be confident that their pets will be received with care, just as they are.

Thank you for being an integral part of the Pet Shelter program from the inception and wonderful community partners who share our vision.
