Meet Bubba and Shiloh – two survivors of domestic violence who were clients of the Center for Violence-Free Relationship’s Safe Pet Program.
Bubba, a loving 100-pound Saint Bernard mix, was badly hurt and even shot by the abuser in the family. The victim stated, “My husband wanted to hurt me and he knew the best way was through the kids and animals. Shiloh, a very shy 10-year-old black Lab mix, became a client in when her owner went into the Center’s safe house.
The Center’s Safe Pet Program accepts all kinds of animals, from furry bunnies, to slithery snakes. The program has rescued fish, dogs, cats, horses, iguanas, birds to snakes and various other reptiles. The program takes care of all of the animal’s needs, from food to veterinarian visits to teeth cleaning and light bulbs to keep the slithery friends warm.
Placerville Main Street’s Pampering Pickle will host a fundraiser 6:30-8:30 p.m. Sept. 27 or the Center’s Safe Pet Program. At Wag More, Bark Less you’ll be able to enjoy food from Zia’s and Dedrick’s Cheese, wine from Synapse Wines, a demo by Eden Halbert from Sierra Dogs on positive reinforcement dog training, and pictures with your pup.
