Research has shown a link between cruelty towards animals and other violent crimes, namely domestic violence. Abusers may use a companion animal as a tool of their abuse and often times victims who stay in the homes of their abusers do so because they are concerned for the safety of their animals. We hope you will join us for a discussion on this topic, and lunch will be served.
