The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) and The Center for Women & Families established the Safe Haven Program to help care for the pets of domestic violence survivors by offering a “safe haven” for their pets. While survivors seek help and shelter from abusive living situations, KHS provides a safe, anonymous home for their beloved dogs and cats. This program not only provides a safe place for the pets, but also helps puts the family at ease, knowing their furry friends will receive care and love until they can be reunited.
