MAKE A DIF-FUR-ENCE

SIX FEET WALK

Our MAKE A DIF-FUR-ENCE Six Feet Walk  is coming up  in a couple weeks (May 29-31) ,  and we are thrilled at the response we are getting! 

The SIX FEET WALK (4 Paws + 2 Feet)  is  a virtual community event to show  your support of survivors of domestic violence.  The walk will take place on the weekend of May 29-31 and anyone can participate from anywhere, and no, you don't have to walk a pet to participate!  If you have a pet to join  in the fun, even better!


Peaceful Paths is among  the few Florida Domestic Violence agencies that allow victims to bring their pets with them to shelter.  Research has shown that many victims find it difficult to leave their abusers when they have to abandon a beloved pet. Often times, these pets are also victims of the abusive relationship as they are used to manipulate power and control in the relationship.   We feel fortunate to be able to offer a service that ultimately will save more lives, the core of our mission.
