Safe Homes of Orange County Presents Award to Warwick Valley Humane Society for Safe PETS Program
Two and a half years ago, Warwick Valley Humane Society partnered with Safe Homes of Orange County thanks to WVHS volunteer, Les Maier, who initiated this collaboration. This Safe Pets program allows victims of domestic violence to leave the abusive home or partner and not leave their pet(s) behind. WVHS boards and cares for these pets without charge to the Safe Homes client nor Safe Homes organization. Together, we can offer a temporary safe haven for humans and animals.
On Oct. 22, 2015, WVHS was honored and humbled to receive the Mildred Warren Good Neighbor Award from Safe Homes of Orange County at their annual Celebration of Hope Dinner. We will proudly display this beautiful award at our shelter and I offer my heartfelt thanks to Safe Homes of Orange County for bestowing this recognition on our organization for what we perceive as simply doing the right thing.
