Intimate Partner Violence and Animal Abuse: Shelter for Victims and their Pets

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

There is a growing body of literature suggesting a relationship between animal cruelty and intimate partner violence. Some states have responded by including pets on protection orders, but there is growing concern for victims who must leave their pets behind if they choose to enter a shelter. Research in this area reveals that women delay leaving an abusive relationship due to concerns for the family pet. Many domestic violence shelters do not allow pets and this often leads to additional trauma experienced by the victim. This study will examine Northern California domestic violence shelters regarding their policy on pets, pet placement options and possible reduction in recidivism rates among victims who are able to protect their pets while in a domestic violence shelter. Recommendations for future research will be discussed along with suggestions for resources.
