We are proud to participate in this important Campaign by walking at the 2nd Annual Paws for Peace Walk!

If you didn't know already, there is a direct link between domestic violence and animal abuse. Please read below to learn more about why we believe that no one should be left behind.

Why a Paws Kennel?

  • 48% of domestic violence survivors delay leaving an abusive home because they don’t have a safe place for their pets.
  • Pet abuse is often a retaliatory action of abusers. Animals are used as leverage by the batterer as a means to control their victims or as part of a pre-emptive strike to gain or maintain control.
  • According to the American Animal Hospital Association, an estimated 88% of pets living in households with domestic violence are either abused or killed.
  • Of all survivors who enter shelters to escape violence, 57% have had a pet killed by their abuser.
  • Harbor House will be the only shelter in Central Florida with a kennel for pets of domestic violence survivors.
  • Pets are not Pawns!

The Paws for Peace Campaign:

The Paws for Peace Campaign raises dollars for the construction and operations of the Harbor House's Paws Kennel and awareness for the connection between animal abuse and domestic abuse.
