Anova is striving for a future without violence.  We recognize that in order to better support the women and children served in shelter, we need to also support their pets as part of the family unit.   Anova’s Clarke Road shelter is currently pet-friendly.

We would like to acknowledge the support given to us to help keep families together safely: PetSmart Charities of Canada, PAWS (Progressive Animal Welfare Services), EVAH (East Village Animal Hospital).
