Human abusers start as animal abusers. Our furry family members deserve safety, too. There have been too many cases of a domestic abuser using threats against a pet in order to control their victims, not to mention the animal abuser being 10 times more likely to abuse children and the resulting death and abuse done to animals when the victim(s) finally leave the abuser. These victims only leave their pets behind due to pet restrictions in places the victim(s) go for their own safety. We have to prove that we are better than the abuser by giving these animals sanctuary.
