After graduating from Cornell, I found myself in a domestic abuse situation. When I tried to relocate to a shelter in Boston, my best friend Jazz, a black lab, was turned away and we both wound up on the streets. Thankfully, I found fostering through a group at Pine Street and were reunited on the other side. Up to 65% of domestic violence survivors ( 1 Million US) remain trapped for fear of leaving their pets. The mission of PetsEmpower.org is to keep furry families together through a crisis.
