Crisis Center North's PAWS for Empowerment program welcome you and your pet to participate in the "Paws Against Domestic Violence" Pet Walk event! Let's go for a walk/run! Grab your tennis shoes and a pet, and join us at North Park for a 5K on October 8th to kick off Domestic Violence Awareness month! We will have a variety of pet and non-pet related vendors as well as a pet costume contest with prizes!

Sign Up Today and reserve your Swag Bag!

Proceeds from this event will go directly to the PAWS program.

The PAWS program has evolved into a highly successful service offering four distinct components, including:

  1. assisting and providing emotional support and comfort to victims during trauma-informed counseling/therapy services (i.e., animal assisted therapy);
  2. accompanying domestic violence (DV) victims in Allegheny County courtrooms to help them face their perpetrators during Protection From Abuse (PFA) hearings and help find legal recourse;
  3. an educational component for local veterinarians and animal service providers designed to address the intersection between animal abuse and IPV; and,
  4. emergency animal care stipends for pets of families impacted by DV.
