Family court judges, prosecutors, attorneys, and other officials who understand the Link between crimes against animals and crimes against people – and the intense emotional bonds children and women in particular have for their pets — are in a better position to prevent future violence and protect their community. This webinar will: introduce seven distinct Links between animal abuse and other family violence; show how recognizing animal welfare issues helps resolve challenges in animal cruelty and civil cases; offer guidelines for court officials; and review professional and legislative responses to The Link that benefit not only Man’s Best Friend… but also Man (and especially Woman).
