Report the Violence
New study reports that in families where Animal/Pet Abuse occurs, its been found that many other awful abuses are linked to be present in that very same household.
- Risk of child abuse, domestic violence and elder abuse
- 62-76% of animal cruelty in the home occurs in front of children
- 38% of domestic violence victims will delay or refuse leaving the abusive household because they do not want to leave their pets behind
This same study found that children who witness the abuse of animals in their home, are at an increased risk of becoming a violent offender in the future.
What can we do?
Report the Violence!
It’s our responsibility to say something when we see something.
If you fear retaliation, make an anonymous report.
