Resources for Domestic Violence Survivors

Resources for Domestic Violence Survivors

There are a few options that may work for the survivor:

First and most locally, is through Multnomah County’s shelter, they have a program called ‘Pets In Crisis’ where the animals could be boarded and cared for in our local shelter until an alternative housing opportunity for them and their person is available. Contact: 503 988 7387

If the survivor is also in need of housing at this time, Washington County’s Domestic Violence Resource Center runs Monika’s House – Monika’s House has on site housing for companion animals. This option would allow for the survivor to remain with her animals until a more permanent option is identified. Contact: 503-469-8620 placement is done through a phone screening.

You may find assistance for other resources through Multco’s DVERT team, you can find their referral form and more information here.

And finally, Red Rover has a grant program where you as an advocate working with the survivor would be able to refer them to receive funding for placement in a local boarding facility, information on that program can be found here.
