Current Needs...

Millions of American women and men are physically and emotionally abused by their significant other each year. Chances are someone you know...your mother, father, sister, brother, friend, co-worker, or neighbor, is a victim of domestic violence.  Perhaps you feel your friend's problem will work itself out. Nothing could be further from the truth.  The violence will not end until someone takes action to stop it. Helping our friends and family live free from physical abuse is only part of the solution to the problem of domestic violence.  Heightening community awareness and speaking out about the need to protect victim's rights are critical.  Moreover, as role models for the next generation, we must teach our children that the use of violence to resolve problems and control others is unacceptable behavior.

Liberty House of Albany began working towards making our space pet friendly in 2019.  Research shows that victims of domestic violence are less likely to leave an abusive home because they do not want to leave behind their furry loved ones.  Unfortunately, 52% of victims in shelter leave their pets with their batterers to escape the violence.  In a survey completed by NCADV, 71% of pet owners entering shelters report that their batterer had threatened, injured or killed family pets.  We want to remove any barrier that delays a victim leaving an unsafe home.  In early 2023, Greater Good Charities - Rescue Rebuild and Red Rover approved a grant for Liberty House to have a pet safe space.  In October 2023, over 30 volunteers came to the facility to build a state of the art facility for pets.  We opened our shelter on October 27 and by October 30, 2023, we had our first four legged survivor in our pet shelter.  Now when victims call our crisis line and have a pet, that pet will be able to be located on site to provide the emotional support needed during a time of crisis.
