Pets are often a key part of our families. We form strong emotional bonds with our companion animals and they provide friendship, laughs, and even sometimes headaches – like when they have chewed up a favorite sweater. For many of us, coming home for the holidays means embracing our much-loved and missed pets. At the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), we believe that everyone should have a safe and peaceful holiday season – including our beloved pets.
