Leaving an abusive partner or household must be one of the hardest things to do. There are so many emotions involved like fear, anxiety, loneliness. And grief when you have to leave behind you beloved dog or cat. But one shelter knows the mood lighting affect pets have on their owners. Cooper’s House in Iowa is a shelter for not only victims of abuse, but their pets as well.
