At least 48% of women delay leaving their abuser out of fear for their pets safety.
Women who call us looking for safe shelter will often ask what they can do to make sure their pet isn't harmed by their abuser. To address this issue Anna Marie’s Alliance is planning on building a safe home on site for these pets.
Plans for the pet kennel include year round temperature control, sewer and water, and an area where women and their children can play with their pet. Additionally, this will provide an opportunity to teach children kindness and gentleness for all living things.
To make this project a reality we need your financial support.
Cheryl Lightle, in memory of her Schnauzer "Willie", has offered to match up to $10,000 in donations received toward the construction. So, please consider a donation in any amount.
Checks should be made out to Anna Marie’s Alliance. Please note it is for the Pet House. Send to: Anna Marie’s Alliance, P.O. Box 367,St. Cloud, MN 56302-0367.
