Remy, German Shepherd (12 y/o), W 10th & Bleecker St., New York, NY • "I got him off Craigslist from a couple – she didn't want the dog. It didn't solve the problem, though. They broke up anyway. He didn't get the dog back. Selfish of me?"

Ten, Chihuahua (8 y/o), Urban Resource Institute (URI), NYC • "He would run under the bed during the abuse – but he loved him the same as everybody else. He is family – I wouldn't have come if I couldn't bring him with me. He has separation anxiety like I do. He's also important for my son – he knows who his brother is. Having a pet throughout all of this has been such a blessing. He's a survivor too." • In the spirit of the holidays, please think about supporting the URIPALS program with a donation: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/1437660 (link in bio) #petsarefamilytoo

Henry, Yorkshire Terrier/Poodle mix (6 y/o), Urban Resource Institute (URI), NYC • "A study showed that 48% of people delayed leaving a domestic violence situation because they didn't have a place to go with their pets. URI People and Animals Living Safely (URIPALS) is NYC’s only program that allows domestic violence victims to live in a shelter apartment with their pets. Most of the time it's cats and dogs, but we also have a surprising number of turtles in the program. These animals are such a source of comfort for our survivors. Having their pets here makes it feel much more like home – it's a subtle but dramatic shift." • "I was a domestic violence victim of my husband of 35 years. He was abusive towards us financially and emotionally and I wasn't allowed to have an animal in the house. I knew I shouldn't get the dog, but my sixth sense as a mother told me to get the dog. He's been an emotional support for my son through all of this and I would not have come to the shelter if I couldn't have brought Henry with me."
