Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) provides a national zip-code-searchable directory of Safe Havens for Pets of Domestic Violence Victims. These Safe Havens offer sheltering services available in an area that assist victims of domestic violence with placing their companion animals out of harm's way so that they may seek safety for themselves. At times pets and domestic violence survivors may be co-housed, but most of the time other arrangements are made, e.g., placement in foster care, in veterinary clinics, or in animal shelters.
