Pet Safe Haven

Many homes in the United States include a pet as a family member. In homes where domestic violence is present we also know from research the animals are often abused as well. Many victims refuse to leave because they fear for the safety of their animal. In some instances their pet maybe their only source of love and support.

 

In order to remove this barrier from victims leaving, Beacon Center partners with Dr. Mei-yao Louis of Westside Animal Clinic to offer pets a safe haven from domestic violence. Dr. Louis generously boards the pets of victims while they stay in the shelter at Beacon Center. Dr. Louis and her dedicated and loving staff have provided countless days of safe shelter to dogs, cats, guinea pigs and more over their years of service.

While the pets are housed with Dr. Louis clients are free to visit their furry family members for their continued love and support.

Please call and speak with Beacon Center staff about accommodations for your furry family member at 1-800-660-8014.
