Clark Kent (the cat) was the first resident of a very rare place - a safe haven for families and their four-legged loved ones.
Clark Kent's family, 12-year-old Robert and his mom, had to leave a bad situation in another state. "I didn't have anywhere to go," Robert's mom told local news outlet Fox 10 Phoenix. The family, who had already lost so much, would have to give up their beloved cat, too.
Many pets have to be left behind because domestic violence shelters don't have facilities for the non-human members of the family. But the Sojourner Center in Phoenix, Arizona, changed the rules. Now, families who have to leave their homes don't have to leave their beloved animals behind.
