Support for pets of family violence victims

You can access temporary accommodation at the Epping Animal Welfare Facility for your pet if you are a victim/survivor of family violence.

The City of Whittlesea in partnership with the Cities of Darebin and Merri-bek has developed a Domestic Animal Welfare Policy to supporting residents impacted by family violence.

The policy allows for temporary accommodation for pets to support family violence victims/survivors in an emergency or crisis.
