SafePlace & Turning Pointe Partnership
CFA knows that the bond between people and their pets can be critical to their emotional and mental health, as well as their sense of safety. This can be especially true for survivors of domestic violence, who can oftentimes have their pets used against them, or feel as though they don't have the tools to successfully leave the situation with their pet. Working with SafePlace Olympia and Turning Pointe Shelton, CFA provides two programs to create a safety net for survivors.
Working with our community partner Mud Bay, CFA has created a Go-Kit program to help survivors of domestic violence immediately leave hostile environments with their pets. Survivors contact SafePlace or Turning Pointe and are referred to the CFA office to get all of their pet's basic necessities. This includes food, treats, collars, leashes, bedding, toys, litter, carriers, etc.
Transitional Housing Program
Survivors of domestic violence who are attempting to enter transitional housing with their pets can contact SafePlace or Turning Pointe and get a referral to CFA's Transitional Housing Program. This program will pay for their pet's wellness exams, necessary vaccinations, parasite and flea medication, and any other barriers holding them back from housing with their pet.
