Rescue Village will at times offer protective custody to serve the needs of law enforcement within Geauga County. For example, we partner with WomenSafe, a local non-profit organization that provides free support and emergency shelter to survivors of domestic violence throughout Northeast Ohio. Rescue Village will provide short-term shelter for an animal while she is getting assistance from WomenSafe.
All requests to Rescue Village to provide custody for an animal come directly from WomenSafe and local law enforcement. If you or your family is in need of emergency protective custody for a pet, we urge you to contact your local authorities.
