Pet-Friendly Domestic Violence Shelters

Last updated: June 2024

This is a listing of domestic violence shelters that accept FAMILY pets.

This list DOES NOT include shelters that only accept service animals or emotional support animals requiring a doctor’s note. All U.S. shelters are required to welcome service animals pursuant to the American’s with Disabilities Act.

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.
