PAWS Act Funding Now Available

The Pet and Women Safety Act Coalition (PAWs), a nonprofit and for-profit group, has been raising awareness among the domestic violence shelter community of the US Department of Justice Emergency and Transitional Pet Shelter and Housing Assistance Grant Program, according to officials.

Referring to media reports, the program is expected to support shelter and transitional housing services for survivors of domestic violence and their companion animals, which was made possible by the passage of the Pet and Women Safety (PAWS) Act by Congress in 2018.

Organizations included in the PAWS Act include: Purina, Human Animal Bond Research Institute, Noah’s Animal House, Pet Partners, Urban Resource Institute and RedRover.
