Help Build a Safe Space for Victims and Their Pets

Imagine the terror of living in an abusive environment, fearing for your life and the safety of your children and pets. Sadly, this is a harsh reality for too many individuals. 

An estimated 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experience some form of domestic abuse in their lifetimes. For these survivors who own pets, nearly 71% report that their abusers have threatened, injured, or killed their pets.

For these survivors, one heart-wrenching dilemma stands in the way of their escape: the lack of safe accommodations for their pets. Tragically, fewer than 1 in 5 domestic violence shelters provide pet-friendly services, forcing 47% of survivors to make a choice no one should ever face - leave their abusive environment behind, but abandon their pets or remain in danger together.

With your help, we can keep victims of domestic violence and their pets together.

The Greater Good Charities Rescue Rebuild program reimagines shelters for survivors of domestic abuse, renovating and transforming domestic violence shelters to provide safe, inviting places for survivors and their pets.

Will you help us provide safety for survivors of domestic violence and their pets? Just $100 offers a night of safety to a survivor. 


Update from the field:

In October, Rescue Rebuild brought 26 volunteers to Liberty House in Albany, Georgia, for 13 days to replace a dilapidated shed with a fenced play yard and a new structure that houses three separate pet retreats for the dogs and cats of domestic violence survivors.

The separate suites of the “Paws Playhouse” each have pet beds and other living-room-like furnishings, AC, toys, and access to covered outdoor spaces. The space is also ADA-accessible.

Future residents of Liberty House won’t have to choose between staying in an unsafe situation or leaving their pets behind in one. Instead, they’ll have safe on-site housing for their dogs or cats where they can spend time with their pets every day. The new structure offers 1095 nights of safety for pets of Liberty House guests.

Your donation can help make more builds like this one possible.


Rescue Rebuild is a program of Greater Good Charities whose mission is to provide aid to shelters in order to improve the lives of animals by participating in outreach trips, collecting supplies for shelters and educating the public on proper animal care.

Save People and Their Pets from Abuse

This project saves BOTH people and their pets from abusive situations. Many abused people will not leave a situation because most safe houses will not accept people with animals and they fear their abusers will take their anger out on their beloved animals they’re then forced to leave behind. Rescue Rebuild retrofits shelters for people so pets can be accommodated. Please consider contributing so people in crisis aren’t forced to choose between saving their own lives and saving their pets’ lives. Often their pets are their only means of emotional support.
