ABOUT NOAH’S ANIMAL HOUSE @ THE SHADE TREE

Every 15 seconds, a woman is battered by her partner in the United States. Many battered women lack the financial resources and emotional support to flee their abuser. Often, the inability to leave is expanded to include family members; especially those sometimes forgotten  – the family pet. In a national survey, 85% of women seeking safety in a domestic violence shelter reported pet abuse in their home. Las Vegas was one of the first cities in the United States to address the important barrier facing victims of domestic violence.  Noah’s Animal House was built on the grounds of The Shade Tree

Shelter in 2007 to provide safety, shelter and support to the pets of their clients. In addition, foster parents are available for special pets that require more living space and veterinary services are on hand at all times.
