October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Today kicks off Domestic Violence Awareness month. The AKC Humane Fund is proud to be the leading organization that provides financial assistance to domestic abuse shelters that accept pets. Nearly half of abused women with pets report that they delayed entering a shelter because of concerns for an animal left behind. Our grants make it easier for women’s shelters to welcome pets and help break the cycle of domestic abuse.

Visit the AKC Humane Fund on Facebook and help spread word about this important cause.
