A victim of domestic violence, Kat’s owner had almost lost hope that she and Kat could escape abuse together. Then she learned about Domestic Violence Intervention Services, Inc. (DVIS) in Tulsa, OK. DVIS had recently opened a kennel that provided accommodations for Kat and a safe environment for Kat and her owner to heal together. Free from abuse, they were able to recover and give each other the reassurance they needed to move on with their lives in peace.
A $5,000 grant from the Banfield Foundation helped DVIS fund their animal shelter and provide a much-needed option for victims of domestic violence and their pets to find safety together.
