reBlog from civilrightsandwrongs.wordpress.com: “It is fair to judge a peoples by the rights they will sacrifice most (for)”

Posted: January 24, 2010 in Uncategorized

I found this fascinating quote today:

According to the group Aardvarc.org (which stands for – An Abuse, Rape and Domestic Violence Aid and Resource Collection), of 50 women’s shelters surveyed, 85% reported that women in their shelter talked about pet abuse, 63% of children talked about pet abuse, and 83% said that they had observed the coexistence of domestic violence and pet abuse.  Further research indicated that 70% to 75% of women reporting domestic violence also reported that their partner had threatened and/or actually hurt or killed one or more of their pets.  The link to Aardvarc.org above also contains links to the original research, so it is well worth checking out if you are interested in this issue.civilrightsandwrongs.wordpress.com, “It is fair to judge a peoples by the rights they will sacrifice most (for)”, Jan 2010
