Become a Refuge for Pets of Domestic Violence Survivor

Paws for a Cause2


Our volunteers provide a safe place for pets to land during these times of transition- and that role is absolutely crucial to our mission.

We are looking for both traditional boarding facilities, as well as foster homes to join our network of support for those fleeing domestic violence. As a volunteer, you will be matched with pets and families that need your services.

For boarding facilities, most pets stay only a week before being moved to a longer term solution like a foster home, but sometimes, pets need a safe place at your facility for up to a month. Praline’s Backyard Foundation covers the cost of boarding the animal.

If you’re a pet boarding facility interested in joining our network, we invite you to become a part of our mission to support domestic violence survivors and their pets. By joining our network, you’ll have the opportunity to reach a wider audience of pet owners in need of your services while making a positive impact on the lives of domestic violence survivors.

So if you’re looking for a way to give back to your community and provide a valuable service to those in need, join Praline’s Backyard today and become a part of our network of compassionate and dedicated pet boarding facilities.


Foster families provide a critical bridge for pets and their humans who are starting over. With the information from our foster form, we will match you with pets that we think may do well in your home. Fostering can be as short as one week or as long as 6 months. You let us know what you are able to commit to and we will work with you and the family to ensure everyone’s comfort and compatibility.

 As a pet foster, you’ll have the opportunity to provide a temporary home for a pet in need, giving them the love, care, and attention they deserve. Our network of pet fostering programs across the country offers a range of services, including support and resources for pet fosters, regular check-ins, and assistance with medical care and supplies.

At Praline’s Backyard, we believe that every pet deserves a loving home, and we’re committed to working with pet fosters like you to make that a reality. By becoming a part of our network, you’ll have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of pets in need while building meaningful relationships with the animals you care for.

So if you’re interested in becoming a pet foster and helping pets in need, we invite you to join Praline’s Backyard today and become a part of our network of compassionate and dedicated pet fosters. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of animals in need.

We Need Your Help

Whether you are a facility or a foster family, respond as soon as possible if we reach out to you about a potential match, as we often have a family waiting to leave until they know that their pet has a safe place to land.
