  • Pets are more than just animals; they are cherished members of our families. They share our homes, participate in our daily routines, and provide unconditional love and companionship. However, this close bond can also make pets vulnerable in households where domestic abuse occurs. Abusers often threaten to harm or even kill pets as a means of exerting control and instilling fear in their victims. This horrific form of manipulation not only endangers the welfare of these innocent animals but also further traumatizes the human victims of abuse. Therefore, it's crucial that protective measures are put in place for pets in such situations, acknowledging their status as family members and their right to safety.
