Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month 

Monthly Article

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.  TDV not only affects teens, but also their parents, peers, and other members in their communities. According to loveisrespect.org, "1 in 3 U.S. teens will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from someone they’re in a relationship with before they become adults. And nearly half (43%) of U.S. college women report experiencing violent or abusive dating behaviors." [1]

The theme for 2023's TDVAM is "Be about it". It is a call to action to raise awareness about teen dating violence and educate the public on ways to recognize the signs to stop dating violence in its tracks. Join us on Tuesday, February 7th in wearing orange to show your support and raise awareness about dating violence. Share your photos online with the hashtags #beaboutit #tdvam23

Everyone deserves a healthy relationship. To learn more about TDVAM, and how you can spread awareness this month, visit loveisrespect.org 's call to #beaboutit guide

Meet our Pet of the Month, Drama! 

This month's pet of the month is from one of our partners, Shelter from the Storm. 

"This beautiful girl, affectionately nicknamed "Drama," will need a patient forever family. Andromeda is still learning about strange things like getting pets and interactive feather toys. However, she's making consistent progress, and really starting to enjoy her taste of the good life. A family that is willing to continue working on her confidence will be rewarded by seeing her goofy personality emerge: from getting all four paws invested in playtime, to scrunching herself into a variety of sleeping positions, to her very expressive kitty face. Ideally, she will go to a home with a gentle cat companion who can show her that humans are nothing to be afraid of.

Drama really enjoys sleeping on her favorite spot in the sun by the window. She is great at keeping herself entertained with independent play toys and exercising her claws on her favorite bit of corrugated cardboard - not on your furniture!

Andromeda's adoption fee is $50 which includes her being spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines/tests. If you're interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website at sftsrescue.org/adoptableanimals



No matter the size, shape, or species, we love when you share your furry friends with us! Click here or the button below to apply for your pet to be the next Pet of the Month!
