2014 Paws for Peace Walk
April 26, 2014 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM| $25
The Paws for Peace Walk is a fun walk that all members of the family are welcomed to take part in, even those four-legged family members. Harbor House of Central Florida, Orange County’s only state-certified domestic violence center, has established Marvin’s Fund to fundraise for its nearly two-year-old pet shelter which allows abused families to remain intact.
“One of the biggest reasons why domestic abuse victims remain in their situation is because they don’t want to leave their pet behind,” said Carol Wick, CEO of Harbor House of Central Florida. “In fact, up to 48% of domestic violence survivors delay leaving their abuser out of fear of what will happen to their pets. Our Paws for Peace Kennel ensures no family member is left behind in an abusive home.”
