Domestic Violence Awareness Month

These are the often forgotten victims of Domestic Violence.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sophie when I was interviewing Sherry (with the CARE program of NM) for a project I was working on.  I was deeply touched at how resilient animals are and how amazing this program is.  The CARE Program provides shelter to animal victims of domestic violence. 

Most shelters or temporary housing do NOT accept animals.  And many women do not leave abusive relationships for fear of leaving their companion animals behind.

If you live in New Mexico, please consider being a foster parent.  OR donate money to the CARE program (Companion Animal Rescue Effort)
