Students for the Sasawin Project: Domestic violence often includes animal abuse. Abusers threaten, harm and even kill pets to control, intimidate and retaliate against their intimate partners and children. A large percentage of domestic-violence survivors with pets or service animals choose to remain in dangerous situations for fear of what will happen to their animals if they leave. The Sasawin Project helps survivors create escape plans that include safe placement for their pets. Sasawin helps survivors transition into the safe haven of shelter knowing that their pets are safe from harm. Project funds provide foster care, kennels, food, collars, leashes and veterinary care for the pets of survivors. The Students for the Sasawin Project is mainly focused on helping raise awareness of this issue, promote the Sasawin Project, and help raise funds. Email sasawin@nmu.edu or cmcdevit@nmu.edu for more information.
