Pet-Friendly Domestic Violence Shelters

Last updated: February 2022

This is a listing of pet-friendly domestic violence shelters. Shelters are required to welcome service animals pursuant to the American’s with Disabilities Act. This listing is of shelters that welcome family pets or emotional support pets.

There is no guarantee that a shelter can help, so please check with each shelter regarding what pets are welcome and availability. Some shelters may also take out-of-state residents. 

Because SAF-T understands the concern about confidentiality of shelter locations, the shelters listed here have been contacted and given consent to be listed on this website. If you do not see a shelter listed in your area, please contact your local shelter as they may be able to help you with your pet.

If you cannot locate any pet-friendly domestic violence shelters from this list below, please check out A Safe Place for Pets that also has off-site housing options for pets.
