Pet owners experiencing domestic violence or homelessness often struggle to access shelter and other services. Some may even refuse lifesaving care if it means they must leave their pets behind.
Greater Good Charities and RedRover believe that pets are family, and that no one should have to choose between family and safety. In 2019, these shared values led to the creation of Don’t Forget the Pets, a collaborative project dedicated to helping people and pets stay together through crisis.
Today, Don’t Forget the Pets provides support to organizations throughout the country, giving them the tools they need to build pet housing programs in their communities.
