Humane Rescue Alliance
The Humane Rescue Alliance works to protect animals, support families, and advocate for positive change so that all beings can thrive. The Shades of Compassion Foundation is proud to support the Alliance’s Safe Haven program which helps remove a significant barrier for many people trying to leave abusive relationships. The rates of animal abuse in homes that experience domestic violence is extremely high, and abusers often use the pet as a means of control over their partners. Since domestic violence shelters rarely accept animals, this program is available to victims who need free, short-term boarding of their animals while they search for a safe, stable, pet-friendly home. While in HRA’s care, pets receive free vaccines, spay/neuter services, enrichment, and lots of love and cuddles. 98% of pets in the Safe Haven program are successfully reunited with their loving owners.
