Nearly two-thirds of Americans have pets in their homes. Unfortunately that love of pets can be used against domestic violence victims as a means of power and control. Seventy-one percent of domestic violence victims report that their abuser targeted their pet. It is this link between animal abuse and domestic violence that has caught the attention of law enforcement, prosecutors, and domestic violence experts.
