Pets and Domestic Violence

Domestic abuse or violence can affect your pets too

It is common practice for the perpetrator of domestic or family violence to try to lure family members back home by threatening to harm the pet.

RSPCA NSW’s Safe Beds for Pets program was established to provide temporary housing for pets of people who are seeking refuge from domestic and family violence.

The Safe Beds for Pets program is not a long-term solution to the housing of the pet, but it allows individuals who are experiencing domestic and family violence to secure their own safety.

Where possible, clients pay the veterinary and boarding fees at the time of service. All cases will be assessed on an individual basis.

For more information please email safebeds@rspcansw.org.au or phone 02 9770 7555.
