About Stichting Mendoo

Mendoo offers practical help to victims of domestic violence in a care process and their pet, by encouraging and supporting shelter locations in admitting animals. If this is not possible, Mendoo can temporarily take care of these people's pets with (anonymous) host families and host parents. For many victims of domestic violence, the pet is a reason not to flee or to flee much later, because they do not want to leave the pet with their ex-partner. By temporarily hosting the animal with a host family, the owner can work on recovery in peace, without worrying about the pet.
In addition, Mendoo also provides training and education to care providers about the relationship between domestic violence, child abuse and animal abuse and the role of pets in the family system.
