Safe Haven for Pets

Often, pets are used as tools in abuse and suffer from extreme violence when they live in a home where their owner is a victim of domestic violence. Care Lodge is able to provide support and care for these pets while their owners receive support and services.

The Safe Haven Program is a partnership with the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine to provide short-term boarding program to benefit shelter clients and their pets. Shelter clients who flee domestic violence with their pets have access to free services such as:

boarding and food


heartworm and parasite testing and treatment 

spay or neuter surgeries 

flea and tick control

any other medically necessary treatment

transportation to and from the hosting animal clinic

Since the program began in 2009, Safe Haven has provided 71 animals with over 2,500 days of service. 

For more information on this program, please contact or 601-482-8719
