Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, and Animal Abuse

"Evidence is mounting that animal abuse is frequently embedded in families scarred by domestic violence and child maltreatment, and often predicts the potential for other violent acts."

This landmark book, published by Purdue University Press, is filled with compelling essays that violence prevention programs are enhanced by including animal protection personnel and by recognizing animal maltreatment as a human welfare issue.

This supports the fact that respect, kindness, tolerance, compassion, and personal responsibility are necessities for all living things.
