Ahimsa House was named a winner of Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program and received a brand new 2011 Toyota Highlander Hybrid on December 20 for use in transporting pets to safety from abusive situations. Decatur-based Ahimsa House is Georgia’s only nonprofit dedicated to addressing the connec-tions between animal cruelty and domestic violence. Forty-eight percent of domestic violence victims delay escaping abuse for fear the batterer will kill their pets. Few domestic violence shelters allow pets.
