Abdul, Our latest Angel For Animals!
We love people who
help animals.The Pet
Resuce Examiner reports that Paula Abdul is partnering with The
American Humane Association to promote on-site housing for women
victims of domestic violence and their cats and dogs. The American
Idol Judge / pop star will be the official spokesperson for the cause
and will appear in a public service announcement that will soon air
on You Tube.
(Pets and Womens Shelters), this awesome new program is
the first national proposal to support on-site housing for pets at
women's shelters, and its long over due. Very few shelters currently
accept pets of the people seeking refuge. Pet Rescue Examiner
says, "PAWS is the brainchild of Allie Phillips who is the
director of public policy for the American Humane Association. As a
lawyer she was keenly aware of the worry and fear women have when
they must leave behind their beloved pets.
that 85% of women, who come to a shelter for protection report that
the family cats and dogs have been threatened, physically hurt or
killed by the abuser. Many women put their own lives in danger and
stay in unsafe conditions, just to protect their pets.
The goal of PAWS
is to raise awareness so more shelters will open their doors to pets
and to have communities develop more options for these four-legged
victims. With the help of a nationally recognized star like Abdul,
the American Humane Association is hopeful PAWS will be a huge success".
