Call for Submissions:
Design a special edition Ahimsa House t-shirt for the 2016 Atlanta Pride Parade!
Ahimsa House is so excited to be participating in this year’s Pride Parade! We are looking for someone to design a pride-themed Ahimsa House shirt for our volunteers, staff, and supporters to wear while we walk in the Parade.
Designs should ideally display the name of our organization prominently on the front of the shirt (but this is not a requirement) and somehow incorporate our mission of helping people and pets escape domestic violence.

What is Ahimsa House?
Ahimsa House is dedicated to addressing the link between domestic violence and animal cruelty. We offer services and assistance to victims of domestic violence with pets in Georgia and work to raise awareness of this connection in communities throughout the state.
Since 2004, Ahimsa House has provided over 55,000 nights of emergency safe shelter for animals of all kinds. We also provide routine, emergency, and forensic veterinary care; transportation of pets to safety; guidance on protecting pets from abusers via the legal system; a 24-hour statewide crisis line offering information and referrals; financial assistance with pet deposits for transitional housing; and outreach programs to raise both public and professional awareness about the connections between animal abuse and domestic violence.
Without services like ours, as many as half of domestic violence victims delay escaping their abusers because they worry about what will happen to their pets when they leave. For more information, please visit our website at www.ahimsahouse.org.
