Animal Safehouse Program

We understand that domestic violence harms every member of the household and we are here to offer a lifeline to the beloved pets living in abusive environments.

The Animal Safehouse Program coordinates temporary shelter and veterinary care for the pets who are victims of domestic violence. Our goal is to reunite program participants with the survivor once safety and stability have been reached.


Rancho Coastal Humane Society is the Animal Safehouse Program’s host organization. Animals enrolled in the program are not accessible on site at the shelter. We collaborate with community partners throughout California when coordinating the shelter of our program animals.
