NCADV with Bayer Animal Health Announces Grantee Recipients

Today the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) and Bayer Animal Health announced the recipients of $100,000 in funding to help alleviate the amplified strains put on their domestic violence shelters and programs in the wake of COVID-19. These 30 nationwide recipients either provide on-site pet facilities or need funding to help accommodate pets in the interim as families escape abuse with their pets.

“We are delighted to join with Bayer to support shelters and programs during this challenging time,” said Ruth Glenn, president and CEO of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. “These grants will provide critical resources to aid families seeking shelter with a beloved pet. Victims no longer have to choose between leaving an abusive partner and keeping their pets safe.”

“We’re humbled and honored to support these 30 domestic violence shelters and programs during this pandemic to help fill the gap that exists for families escaping domestic violence with their pets, said Lauren Dorsch, Deputy Director, Communications, Bayer Animal Health U.S. “No one should have to choose between their safety and their pet.”
