August 8 @ 8:00 am - August 10 @ 11:00 pm$5
From August 8th and 9th to help us raise money for our pet shelter: Cooper’s House! For $5, our kids at shelter will make a portrait of your pet!
DVIP has renovated a room in our emergency shelter, that has access to our backyard, to include two separate rooms with dutch doors for larger animals and a separate space with three small pet havens. The entire space has special venting and bathing facilities. We have also including a comfy couch and decor for survivors and their pet to enjoy time together. We serve approximately 20 pets a year at Cooper’s House.
Up to 70% of domestic violence victims report having a pet. Abusers threaten, injure, and at times kill pets in order to control their victims and to create an environment of fear within the home. Approximately 50% of women have refused to leave a dangerous situation for fear of their pets’ safety. DVIP is one of two domestic violence programs in Iowa that has an organized safe pet program.
