Companion Animal Program
We offer shelter, respite care, adoption and other services for companion animals and even certain farm animals.
Animals are beloved members of many families, and are often the targets of abuse. It can be either to intimidate and further taunt a victim, or to suffer additional abuse just because a batterer feels like hurting the animal.
As a part of our comprehensive services to families struggling with the effects of domestic violence ANHC feels that this program is critically important, and can even make the difference between a battered woman escaping, or staying with an abuser rather than leaving a vulnerable animal behind.
