Dog walk in support of Claire Moreira Pet Fund

Claire was an amazing volunteer.  She had a soft spot for pets and their connection to domestic violence.  We’re honored to be making the 2nd annual community dog walk in her honor.

We’ll be holding the event July 19th at noon in Duboce Park.

Many people aren’t aware of the connection between pets and domestic violence.  Hard and fast numbers, as with many things in domestic violence, can be difficult to come by, however as many as 40% of potential survivors are unable to escape abusive situations because they worry about what will happen to their pets should they leave.

All proceeds raised from the event will go towards the Claire Moreira Pet Fund, started by Claire’s husband, Ricardo in his wife’s name, to help survivors pay for pet costs during their time of need.
