Walk Against Abuse
September 18 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm$25
C.A.R.E.4Paws, Domestic Violence Solutions for Santa Barbara County (DVS), and Elings Park invite the animal-loving community to Walk Against Abuse on Sunday, September 18, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m, at Elings Park in Santa Barbara. The inaugural event raises funds and awareness for C.A.R.E.4Paws’ Safe Haven program. Safe Haven was launched in 2020 in partnership with Domestic Violence Solutions (DVS). Safe Haven provides anonymous boarding or foster care for pets of domestic violence victims. Pet owners trying to leave abusive relationships can seek emergency shelter through DVS or a similar agency without fearing for the safety and well-being of their beloved pets.
Walk Against Abuse attendees can take their pups on a dog walk through beautiful Elings Park at noon. There will also be fun activities, food, music, and a short presentation about Safe Haven’s goal to prevent suffering and save lives. Attendees interested in helping the program can learn how to become a Safe Haven foster family. Entry is $25 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under.
