The Safe Haven Network

Referral Program

The Safe Haven Referral Program is designed to place the pets of domestic violence victims in safe, temporary shelters or foster homes while their owners are staying in domestic violence shelters. This is accomplished through partnerships with domestic violence agencies, animal shelters and foster networks in the area.

Registered advocates can submit applications for safe haven referrals on behalf of their clients, domestic violence survivors escaping abuse with their pets.  Advocates also receive and review applications for assistance from clients who contact The Safe Haven Network directly.

Registered shelters receive and review applications for safe haven that are submitted by advocates on behalf of their clients, domestic violence survivors escaping abuse with their pets.  Our safe haven partners operate their own emergency boarding programs. The Safe Haven Referral Program provides a consolidated application to all of these programs to save the client’s time and energy.

If your organization would like to join The Safe Haven Network and help domestic violence survivors with pets, first you need to register an account for your organization in The Safe Haven Network's secure online portal.
