The Ottawa Pet Expo has selected SafePet Ottawa as its charity of choice.

SafePet Ottawa fosters companion animals for women and their children who need to exit from domestic violence into the safety of local Violence Against Women (VAW) shelters.

They are veterinary clinics, fosters, behaviourists and sometimes your next-door neighbour.

They provide necessary veterinary intake and long- or short-term fostering for the duration of a woman’s stay in her shelter.

Upon exiting a shelter, SafePet Ottawa reunites owners with their pets so that they can move into a better future together.

In Ontario, 48% of women who should be exiting from situations of domestic violence delay leaving — or don’t leave at all. They are afraid to leave their companion animal(s) behind, lest it become their proxy at the hands of the batterer.
