Two at a Time is dedicated to addressing the link between domestic violence
and animal cruelty. Our mission is to offer services and safe places to pets of those
fleeing domestic violence in King County until reunification is possible.
We are currently raising funds to become operational by late 2019. Over 75% of our budget will go to pay for veterinarians.
