More than half of domestic violence victims leave behind a pet to escape their abuser. Others put off leaving because they don’t want to leave a pet behind.
On August 27, join a Twitter talk co-hosted by the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence. We'll talk about how anti-violence and animal welfare advocates are collaborating to expand support and services for pet owners experiencing family violence and to provide shelter for their pets. We’ll also share ways to find local organizations doing this work and how to get involved in your community.
When: August 27, 2015, at 2 p.m. EDT Who (Co-Hosts): The Family and Youth Services Bureau’s National Clearinghouse on Families and Youth (@NCFY) and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (@NationalDVAM) Hashtag:#NCFYtalk Let us know you're joining: RSVP on Facebook
