Pet Transitional Living Program

pet program

Domestic violence can affect everyone in your household, and everyone deserves to be and feel safe. An abuser may threaten, batter or kill the family pet in order to maintain power and control over their victim(s). Many victims of domestic violence will not seek shelter for themselves if there is no safe place for their animal companions to go. That’s why the Pet Transitional Living Program (PTLP) was created.

The Eau Claire County Humane Association’s PTLP program was established to provide temporary shelter for beloved pets who might also be in danger. We want to ensure nothing is holding you or a loved one back from finding freedom and safety.

If you or a loved one is experiencing abuse, please do not hesitate to contact the Bolton Refuge House at (715) 834-9578 or (800) 252-4357. An advocate is available 24/7 to make safe arrangements for you, your family and your pets.

Volunteers Needed

We are always in need of caring individuals to open their hearts and homes to pets in need. These are temporary placements until the family can transition to a safe environment. If you have a love for both animals and people, consider signing up to be a foster parent for ECCHA.
