In 2014, YWCA Board Member and Community Volunteer Gail Alexander learned that victims of domestic violence often stay in dangerous situations if they cannot bring the family pet with them to safety.  A committed animal lover and devoted YWCA friend, Gail stepped up to help raise awareness and funds to make this pet shelter a reality. Gail grew up surrounded by a pet family and continues to have them in her life today. Her late mother, Abbie, made sure their dachshunds were always treated as important members of the family.  Both Gail and Abbie led the way in supporting the YWCA Pet Shelter in ways financial and spiritual.  Abbie’s Safe Home honors Abbie’s  memory  and is aa safe haven for the four-legged survivors of domestic abuse.
