Staci Columbo Alonso, president of Noah’s Animal House is my guest on this instant replay. Noah’s Animal House is a veterinary and boarding sanctuary on the grounds of a domestic violence and crisis shelter called Shade Tree in Las Vegas. In an attempt to exercise power and control, the abuser threatens to harm or kill the family pet when the victim attempts to flee. In a national survey 85% of women seeking safety in a domestic violence shelter reported pet abuse in their home. The story of how Noah’s Animal House is now a reality came from a simple question…what do we do when women show up to the shelter with their pets?
