Can you imagine the trauma of leaving an abusive relationship and being forced to leave your beloved pet with your abuser?This piece of legislation would allow more shelters to help women and their pets. Please sign the petition to ask Congress to support this important act!
"No one should have to choose between leaving an abuser and protecting a beloved pet." - Lenny Letter
