The Link Between Animal Abuse and Domestic Violence @ Online event

You’re invited to a free, special seminar on the link between domestic violence and animal abuse and what we can do to prevent it.

April is dedicated to the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

National expert Dr. Phil Arkow, the coordinator of the National Link Coalition – the National Resource Center on the The Link between Animal Abuse and Human Violence, will be the speaker at this important event.
