Domestic Violence – Helping Puss
Worthing Cat Welfare Trust works alongside a wide range of other charities to promote and facilitate animal welfare. One particular scheme, which has come to our attention recently, addresses a huge social problem: namely, the ultimate effects on cat welfare when their owners are subjected to domestic violence.
We have ourselves come across a number of cases, where a woman is terrified of domestic violence, but dare not leave the home for fear of what may happen subsequently to the beloved pets she would have to leave behind.
Paws Protect is an excellent new pet fostering service from Cats Protection for families fleeing domestic abuse in London and the home counties. We would urge all our website visitors to read about this service and keep it in mind should you come across cat owners, who are facing this sorrowful reality: https://www.cats.org.uk/what-we-do/paws-protect
