Share the Shelter is a one-of-a-kind fundraiser held at Gulf Place, on 30a. This daylong celebration of music and optimism features musical talent, merchandise vendors, and even a doggie play area. 100% of the profits from the event will go towards giving women, children and animals a second chance at life. When domestic violence strikes, it affects not only the family, but the family pets, as well. It is because of this that Shelter House and Alaqua Animal Refuge are joining forces.
Up to 75 percent of domestic violence victims report their batterers have threatened, harmed or killed their pets, and nearly 80 percent of violent incidents occurred in the presence of women and children. We want to stop the cycle of violence in our community and that includes violence aimed at our four legged family members.
Concertgoers should expect a full day of music, food and fun. Dogs are allowed at this year’s event, and VIP passes, as well as discounted tickets for children, are available for purchase.
