DV & Animal Cruelty

I am stranded at the CLE airport, where power went out 9 hours ago and has only just been restored. Needless to say, it’s chaos here, and the flight I was supposed to get on to go to Dallas has been cancelled. I’ve allegedly been rebooked for later tonight, so while I hang out to see whether I pissed off the travel gods that badly, I figured I’d get a post up.

FJCA has a webinar scheduled for January 14th, 9-10:30 am Pacific: The “Link” Between Interpersonal Violence and Abuse of Animals. Lesley Ashworth from the OH Attorney General’s Office (also a consultant to the American Humane Society) will be the featured speaker. Pre-registration‘s a good idea.

If this is a topic you’re interested in, I’d encourage you to check out AHA‘s online resources on this topic at The Link, and their work around sheltering animals for people fleeing violence (PAWS).

Most law enforcement officers already know this as it’s taught in all academys. With nursing I think it can be important in context of DV and dating violence. Teaching and warning women ( and men ) that ANY hostility directed towards animals especially theres ( or yours )is a deal breaker in any and ALL relationships. Better to get out of dodge and never get in it to begin with !!
