PAWS Program

Deciding to leave an abusive partner is a difficult decision, requiring a great deal of safety planning.  Victims of domestic abuse with pets may have additional obstacles when seeking the safety of an emergency shelter.

Through a partnership with the Animal Welfare Society (AWS), the PAWS (Pets And Women to Safety) Program places pets in a safe, loving foster home while their owners are in shelter.

To learn more about volunteering as a foster home for a pet through PAWS, contact the AWS at: 207-985-3244 or view their website for more information.
