Short-term Accommodations for Emergencies
Whether it is a house fire, natural disaster, or domestic violence, people from all walks of life find themselves temporarily displaced from their homes and often have difficulty finding shelter for both their families and pets.
Recognizing that there is a dire need for emergency sheltering of pets, The Anti-Cruelty Society has established the SAFE program in an effort to protect disaster and violence victims and their animals.

- Applicants must exhaust every other resource available before being considered for the SAFE program.
- SAFE clients are required to communicate their housing status weekly.
- Clients must consent to have their pet/s spayed or neutered if the surgery has not already been performed.
- All applicants must have new housing accommodations for their pets within 30 days.
- SAFE is a free program provided by The Anti-Cruelty Society for animals and people in need.
- Clients are served on a first-come, first-serve basis.
- Animals are housed on site or in foster care for the duration of the contract.
- Each pet will receive an examination by an Anti-Cruelty Society veterinarian at intake.
- The Anti-Cruelty Society will provide the required spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and microchipping free of charge if not already performed by a private practice.
- All pets, whether in the shelter or in foster, will be exercised and examined daily by staff and/or volunteers.
