When you come to the Paws for Peace Walk, you raise awareness to end domestic abuse and animal abuse. 48% of victims delay leaving an abusive situation for fear their pets will be harmed or killed. 85% of women entering shelters report that their batterers killed, injured or threatened a family pet.
Harbor House has almost completed construction of the Paws for Peace Kennel for pets of domestic violence survivors. 100% of the dollars you raise at the Paws for Peace Walk support kennel operations ... ensuring no family member is left behind in an abusive home. Harbor House of Central Florida operates a shelter for women, men and children escaping abuse. Until the completion of our new kennel, we never had the ability to also shelter pets.
Every $125 you raise provides a week of safe shelter for an animal in our emergency shelter.
The Paws for Peace Walk is a fun and leisurely stroll for families, friends and animals alike. Following the walk, enjoy a festival packed with vendors, a dog agility show, facepainting and many more fun activities! Win prizes! Start your team today!
