Paws for Kids

Paws for Kids was established in 1997 by a group of women wanting to provide support to women and children experiencing domestic violence in the North West, which was additional to that provided by womens refuges.

Major gaps in existing provision were identified. More services for children and facilities to care for these families’ pet animals were desperately needed.

Our aims are to help to relieve the pressure these families experience by providing:
• A bespoke support services for women and children to help reduce the
long-term effects of witnessing or experiencing Domestic Violence.
• The temporary fostering of pets belonging to these families.

Hence the name Paws for Kids.
