We are very fortunate to have the support of some amazing partners. They are RSPCA Queensland, Queensland Rail, QSuper, as well as Halcyon and Mirvac.
The RSPCA Queensland has been a partner of DVConnect since 2005. The RSPCA Queensland care for almost 250 animals as part of the Pets In Crisis Program. These animals are in desperate need of accommodation because their family have escaped domestic and family violence situations. While their family go to emergency accommodation or a refuge, often animals are not permitted there. The RSPCA Queensland provides much needed veterinary care, as well as accommodation for up to 30 days. The equates to almost 7500 care days plus veterinary care.
Queensland Rail have been partners of DVConnect since 2010.Queensland Rail have generously provided Queenslanders escaping domestic violence through DVConnect with complimentary long-haul train travel. There are many occasions where it is not safe for a person to stay in the town or city they resided in when they were experiencing domestic violence.
