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 furry loved ones. Brighter Tomorrows is acutely aware of this gap in domestic violence services and the emotional toll it can take on our clients.
