North Fulton Treatment Center and the Ahimsa House
March 3, 2015
North Fulton Treatment Center therapists are huge advocates for the safety and well-being of all animals. During the 2014 holiday season, North Fulton Treatment Center collaborated with Ahimsa House (a non-profit organization dedicated to helping human and animal victims of domestic violence reach safety together) to collect pet supplies, food, and cash donations. A giving tree was placed in our lobby. We had an overwhelming response from our clients and staff.
This picture was featured on the Ahimsa House Facebook page with a caption stating, “Wow! We have had another HUGE success with a giving tree! Our friends over at North Fulton Treatment Center collected so many donations, we filled up our car and our wallet! All of these items will go directly to the human and animal victims we serve. THANK YOU!!”
North Fulton Treatment Center staff and clients stepped up to the challenge this 2014 holiday season by helping Ahimsa House with an enormous amount of donations. Pet food, flea and tick treatments, shampoo, cat litter, clothing, pet beds, toys, treats, and large monetary donations overflowed our Christmas tree this past December. A “Christmas in July” event is already being organized for the upcoming 2015 year.
Ahimsa House is Georgia’s first and only nonprofit organization solely dedicated to helping the human and animal victims of domestic violence reach safety together. Volunteers donate time, money, food, pet supplies, treatments, and even their homes to foster pets for up to 60 days, while the domestic victims can establish safe housing and soon be fully reunited with their house pet. http://www.ahimsahouse.org
If you or anyone you know finds themselves in a domestic violence situation and also has family pets in need, please contact the Ahimsa House Crisis Hotline at 404-452-6248 OR visit them at http://www.ahimsahouse.org.
