Safe Haven for Pets
A program to keep the whole family safe from domestic violence.
This unique program is designed to support victims of domestic violence who are attempting to leave an abusive situation, but fear for the safety of their companion animals.
We offer a temporary housing and care option for pets so victims can seek safety for themselves and know their pets are receiving outstanding care and are safe from harm. During their stay, all pets will receive complete veterinary care including vaccinations and treatments for illness and injuries. Unaltered dogs, cats and rabbits will also receive a spay or neuter surgery. All services are offered at no cost to clients within Franklin County. In 2016, the Safe Haven for Pets program provided service to 50 pets.
While you keep yourself safe, we’ll keep your pets secure. For assistance with your pets, call the dedicated Safe Haven line at (614) 980-2032. Please note, this number is ONLY for the Safe Haven domestic violence program. Operators do not provide information or counseling about other CAHS services.
For all other calls, contact the Columbus Humane Society at (614) 777-7387.
