Temporary Pet Foster Care for Individuals Seeking Treatment or those recovering from Domestic Violence
PAWsitive Recovery provides temporary housing and pet supplies for pets when their humans decide to enter a treatment facility, sober living, or temporary housing situation.
There are many challenges people face in recovery.
Losing a pet on the path to recovery should never be one of them. We also provide aid to women coming out of situations of violent domestic abuse. One of the main reasons’ individuals do not enter treatment to long-term facilities or sober living is because they have no one to care for their animals while in treatment.
Women are often apprehensive about leaving unhealthy situations at home for fear of the safety of their pets. When living in an environment of domestic abuse and substance, animals’ basic needs can be forgotten, overlooked, or neglected.
Often, pets are used as leverage or as a weapon by an abuser to force compliance from the person being abused. Most Often, pets become the targets of violence themselves. Keeping animals united with their owners after treatment takes some of the burdens off shelters and makes it easier for people to enter treatment and get the help they need.
PAWsitive Recovery cares for animals when their humans are incapable of doing so in hopes that they can be reunited after aftercare.
