Noah’s Animal House
Las Vegas was one of the first cities in the United States to address this important barrier facing victims of domestic violence. Noah’s Animal House was built on the grounds of The Shade Tree shelter in 2007 to provide safety, shelter & support for the pets of the clients of The Shade Tree.
Every 15 seconds, a woman is battered by her partner in the United States. People. In a national survey, 85% of women seeking safety in a domestic violence shelter reported pet abuse in their home. Often a woman will leave home after domestic violence and take refuge at a shelter with her pet only to be turned away because very few women’s shelters in the US accept animals. Typically an abused woman will return home to the abuser because the shelter was un able to take her and her pet. Noah’s Animal House is the ONLY women’s shelter in Las Vegas that also accepts pets.
