Safekeepers Program

Let us worry about them so you don’t have to.

The Safekeepers Program is a pet foster program that supports people fleeing interpersonal violence. The program temporarily houses owned animals with specially trained foster families, allowing the animal guardian to focus on their own needs. The main goals of our program are to ensure that pets are safe during this challenging time and to keep the human-animal bond intact.

If you or someone you know is in need of this service, please contact us for further information.

E-mail us at or call 1-855-622-7722 and ask about the Safekeepers Program.
