Pets have the power to heal and they are as much of a part of families as people are for many animal lovers.

That’s why Purina, RedRover and GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Rebuild shelter renovation program recently partnered to renovate and provide more pet-friendly space for the Northeast Georgia Council on Domestic Violence’s regional shelter.

The eight-bed shelter, and two-bedroom annex, provides help as a stepping stone for victims of domestic violence to get back on their feet.
