Pet abuse

Family violence groups concerned about cutback at Calgary Humane Society.

It deals with the violence prevention program that taught staff at the shelter about the signs of abuse.

“Most people seem to think that family violence means a person is getting beaten, but she adds it usually doesn’t start that way.” explains Erin Waite, with the Emergency Women’s Shelter. “If we are going to make any headway to gain ground against family violence the whole community has to be aware of those other stages along the way, and those other signs that there might be family violence or abuse taking place, and one of those earlier signs can be pet abuse.”
