Center for Women and Families accommodates pets in new spaces

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and two local non-profits are teaming up to help families and their furry friends.

The Kentucky Humane Society unveiled new spaces at the Center for Women and Families for families with pets. It's part of the Safe Haven Program that protects families and their pets from domestic violence.

The center's leaders hope the new rooms remove barriers families feel they face when seeking help. 

LMPD Chief Steve Conrad urged victims of domestic violence to seek help. 

"My message to anyone out there -- if you are in crisis, if you need help, please, please, please reach out to the Center for Women and Families," Conrad said. 

LMPD says there have been 11 murders related to domestic violence this year. The Center for Women and Families is on South Second Street and is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
