DV, child abuse & companion animal harm

Signal, T, Taylor, N & Stark, T 2006, ‘Domestic violence, child abuse and companion animal harm: Service provision’, Journal of the Home Economics Institute of Australia, vol. 13, no. 1, pp. 2-5.

ABSTRACT

This paper addresses the link between domestic violence, child abuse and companion animal harm by firstly presenting the results of a study that investigated family service provider perspectives on this link. The results showed that there is a general awareness of this link amongst family service providers and, furthermore, that there is general support amongst this community for a service aimed at specifically addressing this issue. The paper then moves on to discuss the results of a pilot program, Pets in Crisis, which fosters the companion animals of women seeking refuge from domestic violence.
