Often ignored, pets play a significant role in domestic violence:
· The Human Society of the United States (HSUS) estimates that nearly 1,000,000 animals a year are abused or killed in connection with domestic violence.
· A Survey of the 50 largest U.S. shelters for battered women found that 85% of women and 63% of children entering shelters discussed incidents of pet abuse in their family.
