As Founder of the Pets and Women’s Shelters Program, Allie created the National PAWS Day to help domestic violence shelters that house pets on-site to host a dog walk to raise funds for their program, as well as to raise awareness in their community regarding the co-occurrence of animal abuse and domestic violence. Seventeen PAWS shelters participated this year!
