The SAF-T Technical Assistance Center is a free resource to domestic violence shelters and their animal shelter and veterinary partners globally who have questions about co-housing people and pets of domestic violence.

The SAF-T Program experts are available before, during and after implement of on-site pet housing. We are here to serve domestic violence shelters and their partners to help implement and sustain a successful on-site pet housing program and have been doing so since 2008.

The SAF-T Program is not able to communicate with victims and survivors for safety reasons and we refer those individuals to the online listing of SAF-T Shelters, the National Domestic Violence Hotline (800-799-7233) or their local domestic violence shelter for help.
