Sheltering Animals of Abuse Victims (SAAV) is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the cycle of abuse within families. SAAV plays a unique role in this fight by recognizing the importance of animals as vital family members and arranging for their safe harbor at a time of critical need–when a domestic abuse victim seeks refuge from an abuser.
FOR HELP: In case of an emergency, dial 911. Victims interested in using the SAAV Program should contact the 24 hour help line for Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS) at (608) 251-4445, or, toll free, at (800) 747-4045. All intake for the SAAV Program takes place through DAIS.
