For families suffering from domestic violence, the use or threat of abuse against companion animals is often used for leverage by the controlling/violent member of the family. The Houston SPCA recognizes that where people are at risk, animals are also at risk. Our PetSafe program is a referral-based program that provides emergency boarding of pets for families living in family violence shelters. For information dial 713-869-7722 extension 168 or email the PetSafe Program Coordinator.
Intervening on behalf of nearly 50,000 animals in need each year is an expensive endeavor, and your generous donation today will help further our mission. Donating to the Houston SPCA is an investment in your community because your entire donation is used locally to benefit the animals of our area.
