Safe Haven for Pets

The Safe Haven for Pets (Safe Haven) program was created in 2006 to assist the pets of the victims of domestic violence. Our program provides veterinary care, food and shelter to an average of 50 animals annually, at no cost. The average length of stay for a Safe Haven pet is between 35 and 45 days, far longer than that of our adoptable animals. We receive referrals from LSS CHOICES, the Center for Family Safety and Healing, Columbus Police Department as well as other social service organizations, hospitals and churches.

I really do appreciate everything that was done for me so that I could get my fur babies back.

Mason & Oliver love their new little human brother a lot so things are working out nicely thanks to [Safe Haven for Pets]. I'm extremely grateful for everything… [Now] I'm trying to look at the future and not look back at the past. Thank you.

According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, up to 48% of victims of domestic violence delay leaving dangerous situations out of concern for their pets’ safety and 71% report that their pets have been harmed or killed by their abuser. Columbus Humane has been operating the Safe Haven program to care for the pets of the victims of domestic violence so that they can seek safety for themselves and know their pets are receiving outstanding care and are safe.
