Nassau County, NY - October 6, 2016 - The Nassau County SPCA, in partnership with Nassau County and The Safe Center LI, safeguards pets of anyone fleeing a domestic violence situation as long as the victim remains in the shelter. These pets are kept at an undisclosed location and the Nassau County SPCA pays (non-taxpayer dollars) for all boarding, veterinary care, grooming and enrichment activities for the pets enabling victims to leave their abusers as many are reluctant to seek shelter leaving their pets behind in an unsafe environment.
