Bark Out Against Battering
October 26, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
The 4th Annual Bark Out Against Battering Pet Fest
An event to raise awareness about the link between pet abuse and domestic violence.
Not only is cruelty to animals frequently both an indicator and predictor of interpersonal, family, and community violence, but an alarming number of women report that threats to their companion and farm animals prevent them from leaving abusive relationships. Funds raised from this event will help to support the YWCA’s efforts to work with the SPCA in removing the worry women have by assisting in providing protective shelter for pets during the women’s stay in shelter.
Celebrate your furry companions while supporting this important cause with a pet costume contest and parade, pet vendors, doggy trick or treating, great prizes and more!
