By Manny The Frenchie, Manny & Friends

Hi, Manny here. I’m proud to be associated with and its efforts to empower women and girls. Manny LYD shirt

You know, me and my fur-siblings live with really cool peeps. We’re lucky that way. But lots of other dogs (and cats too) don’t have it as good. Some of them live in violent households where the women and children are abused.

I don’t know about you, but my paws won’t stand for domestic violence! If you’re like me and want to do something about it, share these three facts with your buddies the next time you’re at the dog park:

  • • Domestic violence affects as many as 1.3 million people in the U.S. each year, 85% of them women.
  • • 71% of pet owners entering domestic violence shelters report that their abuser had injured, threatened, or killed family pets, and between 25% and 40% of battered women report not leaving abusive situations because they are worried about their pets. 
  • • Domestic violence isn’t restricted to the home: 74% of employed domestic violence victims say they have been harassed by their abusive partner while at work.

Want to do more to help? Come on, don’t make me beg, my parents tell me that’s not polite. Taking action is easy, you can:

  • PurpleYourPet Box• Participate in’s #PurpleYourPet campaign by spoiling your pet with a PetBox, which will support survivors of domestic abuse.
  • • Contact your local domestic violence agency to see whether they accept pets.
  • • If not, offer to foster a pet for a woman fleeing a domestic violence situation.
  • • Share this article with all your pet-loving friends.

So what’s my dream? That all dogs (and people too) live in happy homes with warm beds, lots of love, and plenty of treats (and let’s not forget the BACON!).

What’s yours?
