People and Animals Living Safely (PALS)

As many as 48% of domestic violence victims stay in abusive situations because they don’t want to leave their pet behind.

PALS was created in 2013 to provide co-living options for families and their pets. As the first program of its kind in New York and a pioneer in the nation, PALS provides a safe environment for both survivors and pets so families don’t have to choose between abandoning their pets to enter shelter or remain in an unsafe environment and risk further abuse.
