Houston nonprofit launches free pet boarding program to aid survivors of domestic violence
Houston nonprofit PetSet has launched Pet Protect, a free pet boarding initiative for survivors of domestic violence. The initiative aims to create an opportunity for individuals to flee dangerous environments safely without having to leave behind their pets. Since the stay-home, work-safe order was enacted, weve seen an increase in reports of domestic violence, Co-President of Houston PetSet Tama Lundquist said.

Too often it is not just innocent people that are subjected to violence but their pets endure abuse as well, Houston Dog Ranch owner Matt Bryant said.
