Weekly Community Conversations - Four Winds Connection: Foster Healing Series

When:  May 13, 2024 from 11:00 AM to 11:50 AM (PT)
Associated with  Animal Welfare Professionals

Call Topic: Four Winds Connection - Foster Healing Series

Nearly half of all domestic violence victim-survivors remain in abusive situations rather than leave their pets behind. Four Winds Connections is working at the intersection of domestic violence and human-pet well-being. Our journey began with the creation of the Fostering Healing Series, a program that aims to reach domestic violence victim-survivors and other marginalized groups who aren't often involved in animal rescue and fostering. We share knowledge and build the confidence needed to care for foster dogs all while forging deeper connections within the group and sharing tools to improve well-being for all. In addition, we recently partnered to establish the Minnesota Pet Foster Coalition - a collaboration of Four Winds Connections with three domestic violence organizations and two animal rescue groups to create a statewide pool of foster families that are trained and dedicated to keeping pets safe when their person is ready to seek help. Join us in conversation as we spotlight the need for animal welfare involvement in addressing domestic violence in our communities.
