Helping people and animals escape domestic abuse…

Refuge4Pets provides a specialist Animal Fostering Service across Devon and Cornwall to victim-survivors of domestic abuse so that they can leave with their much-loved animals.

Often individuals and families escaping domestic abuse are unable to take their animals with them, as most temporary accommodation does not allow pets. In many cases, this will stop people from leaving.

As well as our animal fostering service we provide an Outreach Service to support victim-survivors to settle in new communities and recover from the abuse that they have experienced.

We also provide Training & Resources to a wide range of professionals to help them to understand the link between domestic abuse and animal abuse and how to promote the safety of all victim-survivors of domestic abuse – humans and animals.
