Request Housing

Request Assistance for Housing Your Pets

At Praline’s Backyard Foundation, we understand that finding safe housing for your beloved pets during times of transition away from an abusive situation can be challenging. No matter where you are, we are here to help. With resources across the country, we have a network of facilities and fosters who are ready to provide assistance.

If you are a domestic violence survivor seeking temporary housing for your pets, we invite you to click the button below to request assistance. We value your privacy and all information shared will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

How Does It Work?

Once we receive your form, our team will work as quickly as possible to get your information into the system and resources started. We want you to feel comfortable with the accommodations for your pet at every step of the way, which is why we provide financial assistance instead of limiting you to just one option or facility.

Using our coverage map, you can see what sort of options are available in your state. We will work with you to find one that is best suited for your needs.

At Praline’s Backyard Foundation, we believe that no survivor should have to choose between their safety and the well-being of their pets. We are here to support you in finding a safe place for your beloved pet during this challenging time. Your pets deserve to be protected and cared for, just as you do.

At Praline’s Backyard Foundation, we’re thrilled to participate in Maddie’s Fund April 2024  Open Arms Challenge, an initiative aimed at fostering inclusivity and keeping pets together with their people. Understanding the unique challenges faced by domestic violence survivors, we’re dedicated to creating a safer, more supportive environment for both survivors and their beloved pets.

In response to the Challenge, we’re proud to launch a pioneering program designed to alleviate one of the most significant barriers survivors face: finding a safe haven for themselves and their pets. Our program commits to covering the hotel expenses for 7 days for survivors and their pets, ensuring they have access to comfortable, pet-friendly accommodations during their time of need while we find a long term pet foster or pet friendly shelter for the survivor.  

This effort not only provides immediate relief but also reinforces our mission to keep families intact, offering peace and stability during turbulent times. By partnering with pet-friendly hotels, we’re expanding our network of support and creating welcoming spaces that cater to the needs of all community members, especially those in transition.  

We will provide this service for the month of April if we receive continued funding we will extend and have this service remain as part of commitment to domestic violence survivors and their pets.
