Often individuals who are in domestic violence situations will not leave their pets behind to seek help for themselves. Free temporary boarding is provided for pets belonging to individuals who are in an unsafe home and are seeking a new safe place to live.

Free temporary boarding is also provided for pets in case of disasters. Commonly pet owners who have experienced house fires or flooding need help with the care of their pets.

We work with local agencies such as the American Red Cross, Council on Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence, Mid Sioux Opportunity, The Center for Siouxland, Salvation Army, and the Sioux City Gospel Mission Women and Children Shelter to provide emergency housing to the pets of families in need. Please call us here at the Shelter for details at (712) 252-2614, ext. 0.
