LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A local domestic violence shelter is expanding its service to include family pets.

SafeNest says it can currently board dogs and cats by adding two standalone housing units to kennel up to 13 pets.

The nonprofit says it hopes this will give survivors more options to leave abusive relationships as it can also accommodate up to 10 emotional support animals.

SafeNest says the expansion of service was thanks to a $20,000 grant from the Red Rover Cares Act and private donors.
