CHALLENGE #47 - 2019

North Las Vegas, Nevada


The Shade Tree is a large 162-bed shelter which provides safe shelter to women and children escaping domestic violence or in economic crisis. The shelter offers warm beds in a family dorm, daily meals, an onsite medical clinic as well as life-changing programs and services that encourage self-reliance. In homes where there is violence, pets are often threatened or injured by a violent partner. Noah's Animal House is a pet sanctuary for shelter residents that allows women to escape abusive situations without leaving their pet behind. The women and children are sheltered on the same property as Noah's Animal Shelter so that they can continue to visit with, and care for, their beloved pet. We are including Pet Cozies for Noah's in the challenge for Shade Tree. We would like to send the following items to this large shelter:
