- When the human-animal bond is broken by neglect, abuse or violence, both humans and animals are victims.
- When domestic violence occurs in a home, animals are often victims of violence.
- Many victims of violence will not leave violent situations unless they can also provide safety for their animals.
- In Colorado, a small number of domestic violence agencies are equipped to address this issue.
The Colorado LINK Sheltering Project has partnered with Chuck and Don’s in their annual Lending A Paw fundraiser to assist domestic violence agencies in Colorado to address this issue. Your donations help to meet the needs of the animals of domestic violence victims so their human companions may leave violent situations.
