Introducing the most exciting Event in Dog Walking history!!!
Pooch Pack Adventures presents…
The Record Breaking Largest Off-Leash Group Photo!
The "40 Dogs On A Log For A Cause Challenge"


The proceeds are going to fund a cause that we are very passionate about and have been supporting and trying to spearhead for several years!

WE ARE ASKING FOR PUBLIC SUPPORT BY DONATING HERE AT GOFUNDME!

“Helping Pets and Families of Haven Society” of Central Vancouver Island

 This will be a new cause bringing awareness to the challenges that victims of domestic violence face when owning pets in the midst of violence and getting the help that is needed to get themselves, their children and their pets out of those situations. 

Our goal is to bring awareness to the victims of domestic violence that they have options with regards to their pets and that their pets will have a safe place go while they get the help and support they need.

Funds raised for this cause will help pay for their pet's care while in emergency/temporary housing at local BCSPCA branches while their families are in transition during their crisis. Pets are not allowed to stay at the women’s shelter. Our aim is to promote awareness (that there are options for temporary shelter for a victim’s pet) by producing an informative handout for use by the Police Department Victims Services Unit. Funds may also be used for initial pet food and supplies(if necessary) when family and pet are again reunited.

Some statistics and facts we found:

·        33% of women delayed leaving a relationship for as long as 8 weeks because of their pets.
·        52% of victims in shelters leave their pets with their abuser
·        71% of pet owning victims entering shelters reported that their abuser had injured, maimed, killed or threatened to harm family pets
·         El Paso, TX includes pets in protective orders
·         Amsterdam was the first European city to publicly fund an animal shelter for pets belonging to victims of domestic violence

The Record Breaking Largest Off-Leash Group Photo is scheduled to take place on April 15/2015 and will be photographed professionally.

Please help support this much needed cause Helping Pets and Families of Haven Society and tell your friends!!!
