Join Robert Payton with his dog ARCHI and Adriana Pitter with her dog PEANUT on this very important journey, to raise money & awareness to the issues of Domestic Violence and it's impact on pets.
Robert and Archi a beautiful Wiesel ; Adriana and Peanut a beautiful Terrier will be walking their way in their neighborhood in the hopes of raising jointly 1000.00 for Bethesda House .
Please support Robert Payton and Adriana to reach their goal of raising $1000.00 to help Bethesda House , the only Pet friendly shelter in Durham Region, providing a safe haven for victims and their pets.
In 2013, Bethesda House addressed the “Human / Animal Violence Link” head on, becoming the first officially pet-friendly women’s shelter in Ontario, and one of the few in Canada. Women are welcome to bring their pets into the shelter as a part of their family.
Abusers use pets as a tool to coerce and control their human victim(s). Pets are threatened, physically harmed, and are sometimes killed as a means of control.
Women living in violent relationships often will not leave the abusive situations if they have to leave their pet behind, often staying in dangerous situations far longer than it is safe to do so.
We believe that both women and their animals have the right to not be abused, and that the VAW (Violence Against Women) sector and the animal care sector are strengthened when working together toward this end.
