Up to 50% of domestic violence victims delay escaping the abuse and seeking safe shelter because of the concern they have for their pet who would be left behind in the abusive situation. On Tuesday, July 16 Friends of Animals Utah Executive Director Lisa Allison joins this episode to discuss their ground breaking program The Purple Paw Project. This program is committed to assuring victims of domestic violence in Northern Utah are able to escape abusive households and bring their pet(s) along with them to safe sanctuary. Pastor Bonnie Poirier of Peaceful Planet Pets joins us later in the show discussing pet loss and grief, which is a subject most parents do not discuss with their kids until after the fact Then, the parents are in the midst of their own grief and find it horribly difficult, at best, to discuss this topic with their children.
