On Sunday, September 18, C.A.R.E.4Paws, Domestic Violence Solutions for Santa Barbara County and Elings Park hosted the inaugural Walk Against Abuse. More than 200 people and almost as many dogs came out to support Safe Haven, a program that assists pet families exposed to domestic violence. Thank you to all of our participants, sponsors, donors, volunteers and staff for making this happen! A very special thanks to our cohosts, Domestic Violence Solutions for Santa Barbara County and Elings Park.

The fun-filled afternoon included a dog walk through the beautiful park grounds, exciting activities, food by El Pastorcito Mobile, great tunes from Music by Bonnie and a presentation about how Safe Haven prevents suffering and saves lives—and ways to support this critical program!

Mark your calendars for our next Walk Against Abuse: Sunday, October 1, 2023!
