Join us for the first meeting of the Alliance for the Safety of Animals and People (ASAP) since June 2014! 

We will continue to work on our mission to raise awareness of the importance of the human animal bond and the Link between animal cruelty and violence toward people, with emphasis on intimate partner violence, child abuse, and elder abuse. As part of its approach to understanding the behaviors that can lead to domestic violence, CONNECT created the Alliance for the Safety of Animals and People (ASAP) in 2007.
 
According to the American Humane Organization (AHO), approximately 75 percent of women reporting domestic violence also reported that their partner had threatened and/or actually hurt or killed one or more of their pets. Further studies have documented that battered women often delay leaving abusive relationships out of fear for the safety of their pets.
 
Please join us on June 5th! We will review what has been happening in the past 3 years and start to figure out what work remains.
All are welcome! Please RSVP to Elaine Wolff or Susan Urban.
