Navigating Barriers to Safety & Security: Survivors and Pet Placement Advocacy
Survivors fleeing violence comes with many costs, costs which often include leaving behind loved ones, including pets, in unsafe or unfamiliar environments. Up to 50% of survivors will delay leaving a dangerous situation because they fear what will happen to their pets. Yet only 10% of Domestic Violence Shelters have the means to house companion animals. Based on these challenges, through this webinar, domestic and sexual violence advocates will have an opportunity to mitigate these costs by understanding the dynamics between animal abuse, domestic violence, and barriers that placements may have on survivors’ peace of mind. Attendees will become more familiar with how pets impact the trauma survivors face during the healing process as well as how to create plans that follow ADA and HUD guidelines for Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals. This training will emphasize the vital role that safe, confidential, and low-cost approaches to pet advocacy programming have on barriers between survivors and safety.
