How Rose Brooks Got It's Pet Shelter

In 2012, Rose Brooks Center became the first domestic violence shelter in the region to welcome four-legged family members.

The idea for this incredible project was born, when a woman called our hotline after her boyfriend had beaten her – almost to death. Immediately we found space for this young woman. There was one problem. She had a 110-pound Great Dane whom she refused to leave behind. The dog had saved her life by lying on top of her during the attack and taking the majority of the blows. As a result, he sustained many broken bones.

The giant Dane was the first animal to live at Rose Brooks Center, but he was only the first.

Today owners have 24/7 access to their pets within the safety of the shelter to walk, run, and play. Our pet advocate and pet volunteers offer enrichment activities and coordinate vet care for the animals to help make sure they are happy and healthy.
