We're very proud to be supporting the work of Pet Refuge
. This incredibly
important charity was launched last year by Founder and CEO of KidsCan, Julie Chapman. After becoming aware that some people experiencing family violence delay leaving out of fear for their pets’ lives, she felt driven to help: “For many people, pets are family. For victims of domestic violence, they provide real solace. Leaving them behind with an abusive partner just isn’t an option. We hope that if victims know their pets will be well looked after while they escape, it will remove a barrier to them leaving.”
Julie and the Pet Refuge team worked tirelessly for 4 years to raise enough money to build the Pet Refuge shelter -
New Zealand's first shelter dedicated to caring for animals escaping family violence.
