Services can now access temporary accommodation and care for pets on behalf of victim survivors of family violence.
The Epping Animal Welfare Facility, operated by RSPCA Victoria, will accommodate and care for domestic animals of residents impacted by family violence in Whittlesea, Darebin and Moreland.
Temporary care for pets will be provided for up to three weeks, with extensions considered on a case-by-case basis. Pets other than cats or dogs may be considered.
