Humane Services is committed to working with the RNC and women’s shelters to provide temporary accommodations for animals whose owners are fleeing from intimate partner violence. Victims and their children delay leaving their households out of concern for the family pets. This increases risks to the victims, children and the pets of further injury or death. Emergency shelters do not accommodate pets. You can help by fostering a pet in your home. All you need to provide is a safe and loving environment for up to 30 days. Complete this form and email it to humaneservices@stjohns.ca.
