Safe Place for Pets has moved!

If you think you are experiencing abuse or violence in a relationship and need assistance, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1.800.799.7233.
Resources for shelters
- RedRover’s Safe Escape grants offer timely financial support to enable survivors and their pets to leave abusive homes. Grants are available on a case-by-case basis throughout the United States and may be used to pay for emergency boarding and veterinary care. For safety reasons, applications must be submitted online by a case worker or domestic violence shelter representative.
- RedRover’s Safe Housing grants fund start-up costs for domestic violence shelters seeking to house pets on-site. Grants, up to $60,000, are offered on a one-time basis throughout the United States.
- DontForgetThePets.org offers in-depth information on how and why to create a pet program, as well as training and coaching opportunities through RedRover and Rescue Rebuild. We highly recommend taking this training before applying for a Safe Housing grant.
