Sheltering Animals & Families Together (SAF-T)™:
A Solution for Abused Families

June 2013

Presenter: Allie Phillips, Director of NDAA's National Center for Prosecution of Animal Abuse
Length: 1 hour

Families who are abused often have pets and do not wish to be separated from them when fleeing their abusive environment. It is also unsafe to leave pets behind in an abusive environment as it may lure families back to the abuse. Allie Phillips is the founder of Sheltering Animals & Families - Together (SAF-T), a global initiative guiding domestic violence shelters on how to house families together with their pets. SAF-T enables domestic violence victims to leave abusive households without leaving their pets behind and at risk. SAF-T also recognizes the human-animal bond and that family pets can provide comfort, reassurance and healing to adult and child survivors.  This webinar will provide practical tips for prosecutors, law enforcement, animal protection workers, and anyone working with crime victims who have pets.
