Christine's Safe Pet Fund
Christine's Safe Pet Fund is an ongoing fund that has been established in memory of our Past President, and friend, Christine Gillen. Christine's Safe Pet Fund will enable more domestic violence victims to leave abusive households without leaving their pets behind and at risk. Christine's Fund will celebrate the human animal bond and how family pets can provide comfort, reassurance, and healing to Seminole County women and children survivors.
Did you know that 65% of domestic violence victims will delay or refuse to leave an abusive home out of fear of leaving their pets behind?
Did you know that up to 85% of women entering domestic violence shelters reported that their partner had threatened, injured, or killed their pet?
The monies raised will be used for vaccinations, shots, medications, food, and pet housing deposits. Christine's Safe Pet Fund will help to remove barriers to safety and allow survivors withpets to seek safety together thus saving more lives!
