Hillsboro, Oregon

     (Challenge has been completed!)

Monika's House is named in memory of a domestic violence victim, Monika Voits, an Oregon woman who was murdered in her bed by her husband.  Every year they provide safe shelter to more than 200 adults, children and their pets, fleeing from danger of family violence.

Monika's House is proud to be one of only 5 shelters in Oregon providing safe shelter to family pets and companion animals as well.  Therapy and service animals are housed inside.  Their new indoor Pet Sanctuary is currently under construction!  (A challenge for the Pets will be done after the slippers are pledged.)

To quote the Director of Shelter Services:  “This is awesome and very much looking forward to it.”
