The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) has updated and expanded its Safe Havens Mapping Project for pets of domestic violence victims. This directory is a valuable resource for domestic violence victims and their family members, friends, and advocates, as well as for judges, law enforcement, veterinarians and animal protection and mental health professionals. The entries included in this listing either provide sheltering services for the companion animals of domestic violence victims, have a relationship with an entity that does, or provide referrals to such facilities.
The AWI is making a concerted effort to “get the word out” that these sheltering services for the pets of domestic violence victims is available free of charge.
There are 25 Michigan resources listed in a search on the website. These include locations in Allegan, Ann Arbor, Bad Axe, Battle Creek, Bay City, Bloomfield Hills, Cadillac, Coldwater, East Lansing, Grand Rapids, Grayling, Holland, Howell, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Ludington, Muskegon, Petoskey, Pontiac and Port Huron.
