SGC Admin: Women trapped in abusive relationships can get help, but it’s not easy to take the first step, this can be made more challenging if there are beloved pets in the home, this can sometimes deter a woman from making her “escape”… 

However, starting in the fall 2015 a new volunteer pet foster care program is slated to begin…. 

Volunteer’s are needed, and those who volunteer will need to go through a criminal background check, be open to home visits, provide references and sign off on the animal care guidelines… 

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact: Ms. MacKinnon at: director_bethesda@rogers.com for more information.
