October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Through the collaborative efforts of Family Services and Forsyth County Animal Control the program Safe Haven offers an option of temporary foster care for the pets of victims of domestic violence. The Safe Haven Program provides emergency shelter for pets of women accessing the Women’s Shelter in situations of domestic violence.
