One huge aspect in domestic violence situations is the pet - they can't go to women's shelters most of the time, so what do they do? In fact, some women state that as one of the reasons they find it hard to leave the situation they're in. Red Rover, and other similar organization, are working to help.
Red Rovers mission: "Our mission is to bring animals out of crisis and strengthen the bond between people and animals through emergency sheltering, disaster-relief services, financial assistance, and education. We accomplish this by engaging volunteers and supporters, collaborating with others, and maximizing the use of online technology."
They provide financial assistance, as well as provide homes and training for animals that escape domestic violence situations that can't remain with their owners.
