Want to do more? Consider donating:
Our innovative SafePets program provides shelter and safety for the pets of the women and children who come to our shelter to prevent their further abuse, injury, or death.
Research suggests that up to 70% of domestic violence victims delayed leaving the abusive situation out of fear that their pet would be harmed.
By helping assure that cherished pets can be sheltered with families, we increase the chances that abuse victims will seek out and accept shelter assistance.
We gratefully accept help finding the resources to pay vet bills or getting necessary pet supplies. As an alternative, we'll be happy to
accept cash or check donations to be used for the SafePets Program.
Thank you for your caring and support!

Pets are family. Many people will not leave an abusive situation for fear that their pets may be injured or killed to get back at them. Mountain Peace Shelter is one of the only shelters in Colorado where pets can come and be with their humans. The shelter at PeaceWorks, Inc. has on-site facilities for dogs and cats and foster homes for horses and larger animals. Mountain Peace knows the importance of keeping all family members together and safe.
