Domestic Violence and Pets

Presented by: Gwendolyn Packard, Training & Technical Assistance Specialist, National Indigenous Women's Resource Center (NIWRC)

 

August 19, 2020

Time: 12 pm - 1:30 pm Mountain Time 

 

There is a clear and established link between animal cruelty and human violence. This webinar will focus on implications for pets in the context of domestic violence. This is important since studies have shown that 48% of domestic violence victims delay leaving or remain in abusive situations because of their pets. Yet fewer than 10% of domestic violence shelters house pets and almost half of all victim/survivors do not want to be separated from their pets. During this webinar we will discuss advocacy, safety planning, resources, model policies for co-sheltering and review legal protections for animals.
