Please join us for a viewing of Tanya’s Story. CONNECT will be joined by Tanya Mcleod for a discussion on the link between animal cruelty and intimate partner violence, child abuse and family violence.

Animal cruelty and abuse can be an indicator of domestic violence. According to the American Humane Organization (AHO), approximately 75 percent of women reporting domestic violence also reported that their partner had threatened and/or actually hurt or killed one or more of their pets. Further studies have documented that battered women often delay leaving abusive relationships out of fear for the safety of their pets.
