Cumberland Safe Pet Program


About 50% of women will delay leaving an abusive partner out of fear their pets will be killed. Nearly two-thirds of women report their partner actually has abused or killed a pet.


You do not need to leave your pets behind. We will find shelter for them with a pet foster in the community. Know that your pet will be safe with us! The Cumberland SafePet program is a partnership between Autumn House, Amherst Veterinary Hospital and the Lillian Albion Animal Shelter. The program assists women who may be delaying their decision to leave an abusive partner because they cannot take their pet to Autumn House.
