Columbus Humane’s Essential Care Center is now open!!

The Essential Care Center offers free pet care for those experiencing and fleeing domestic violence. In addition, the center will pay for first month’s rent, pet deposits and other furnishings, and bedding to help domestic violence survivors get a new start. Columbus Humane also provides supplies and equipment that help keep pet owners from having to surrender beloved pets, such as baby gates or dog houses.

Future plans also include clinics that will engage both a veterinarian and a nurse practitioner in order to provide care for pets and their owners while their pets are being treated.
