Hush Puppy Haven

Did you know that almost half of all domestic violence survivors delay leaving their abuser because they do not have a safe place for their pet? 85% of women in abusive relationships report abuse to their pets. Sickening. Hush Puppy Haven works in conjunction with the Domestic Abuse Council of Volusia County to try and prevent this from happening. They help find a temporary safe place for pets in these type of situations.

Hush Puppy Haven is a non-profit organization operated completely by volunteers. You can help them by fostering an animal, they are in desperate need of those willing to foster large dogs. You can also give a tax deductible donation via check or paypal. Information on how you can help is here.

I saw the picture below today on Pinterest and it made me think of the awesome people at Hush Puppy Haven. Support your local animals!!

Hahahaha! YES.
