AKC Humane Fund Supports Domestic Violence Awareness Month

AKC Humane Fund Helps bring grant money to shelters so that women who leave abusive situations can bring their pets with them.

AKC Humane Fund Support Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence. – National Network to end Domestic Violence

The AKC Humane Fund is proud to provide grants to domestic abuse shelters that accept pets and to pet shelters with relationships with domestic violence shelters. Each day in October, we will be posting on our Facebook page a statistic regarding domestic violence and pets or a personal quote from one of our grant recipients. We invite you to ‘like’ and ‘share’ these posts to widen the awareness of this important issue.

If you or someone you know is interested in applying for an AKC Humane Fund Women’s Shelter Grant, please send them to the application at http://images.akc.org/humane_fund/GrantApp_Women.pdf.

Some Facts About Domestic Violence:

Domestic violence impacts one in four women in the United States.

Every single day 3 women die in the US due to domestic violence.

Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence, regardless of race, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or economic status.

All Survivors are incredibly strong. They get up every day knowing that the person who should be most supportive will likely spend the day threatening to harm the children and pets, controlling and monitoring their activities, and verbally or physically abusing them.

13% of intentional animal abuse cases involve domestic violence. – AKC Humane Fund

Up to 48% of domestic violence victims will delay or refuse leaving an abusive home out of fear of leaving their pets behind? – (Sheltering Animals & Families Together)
