The link between animal and human violence

Not many of us realize that animal cruelty and neglect is connected to human violence.  In fact, over 30 years of research concludes that when animals are abused, people are at risk and when people are abused, animals are at risk.  Check out this short VIDEO on the topic. LEVI has been doing targeted outreach to local veterinarians and their staff this summer.   We’ve started a newsletter just for vets, provide training on the topic, and we’re about to launch new web pages especially for animal welfare workers.
