Keeping People & Pets Together
Research shows that victims of domestic violence are more likely to delay leaving an abusive relationship if they own a pet. Recognising the lack of pet-friendly refuge facilities for these victims, Safe Pets Safe Families was born. Working with registered foster carers and boarding services, we ensure pets stay safe, and at the same time, allow owners to get back on their feet before finally being reunited permanently with their beloved pets.
At Safe Pets Safe Families, we know the importance of the bond we have with our animals, especially during tough times. So, when those in the South Australian community face disadvantage or crisis, we are there to help keep pets safe and with their loving owner.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
The Safe Pets Safe Families program assists women to leave safely and feel confident that their pet will be safe, so essentially it is a life-saving service. I wouldn’t have coped without their support/service.
My dogs were cared for and loved. They are healthy and so happy. Thank you to Sue for all her love as they absolutely adored her! Safe pets are very blessed to have her and I was blessed to have Safe Pets and Sue!
Without you my pets would have been surrendered, and after losing our home, to know I’d get my dogs back definitely put my mind at ease in an already hard situation. This organisation is remarkable, giving hope to those who have lost all hope!
Thank you so much for looking after my cats. They came back very happy, well-groomed and unaffected by my absence which tells me they were very well loved and cuddled. I don’t know where my cats would be without you. Thank you so much.
