You Can Help Protect Women and Pets From Domestic Violence

Goal: 25,000 Progress: 14,391
Sponsored by: Humane Society of the United States

No one should have to choose between leaving an abuser and protecting a beloved pet, yet far too many women are forced to make this very choice.

The solution is the Pet and Women Safety Act (PAWS) Act. This legislation would help protect women and their pets in two ways: by setting a national policy that includes protections for pets of domestic violence victims and by establishing a federal grant program to assist in acquiring a safe shelter for pets.

The PAWS Act recognizes that domestic violence impacts all members of the family — including the four-legged.

Tell Congress you want pets to be protected under the Pets and Women Safety Act!  US readerslease consider signing this petition.  Thank you!
