The Pet and Women Safety (PAWS) Act: extending protection to pets in battered women refuges — 2 Comments

  1. There are some UK schemes where the pet can be fostered until the abused person is able to set up home without the abuser and take the animal back. This is great, but even better if the pet can stay at the refuge with the owner, (and in many cases the children), as the comfort they would provide would be invaluble.

  2. This is really good news. Help for abused spouses/partners should be extended to their pets. I hope the idea spreads to many more refuges.
