there is a conection between animals abuse an domestic violence an this group is dedicated to showing prof an finding ways to stop it,,,,, When a cat left footprints on Randy Roth's newly waxed car, he caught the cat and bound it to the driveshaft of its owner's car with duct tape. When the car was started, the cat was quickly dismembered, its screams muffled by the sounds of the engine. Roth later murdered his wife by drowning her near Bellevue, WA. Richard Davis reportedly set fire to cats and used dogs for target practice as a child. He was convicted of murdering 12-year-old Polly Klaas after kidnapping her from her Petaluma, CA home. Jeffrey Dahmer had an early fascination with dismembering animals. He tortured and cannibalized 11 people. David Berkowitz shot his neighbor's dog. He confessed to six murders as the Son of Sam. Albert DeSalvo put dogs and cats in crates and then shot them with arrows. We know him better as the Boston Strangler. Luke Woodham... "Kip" Kinkel... Eric Smith.... Russell Weston Jr... Andrew Golden and Mitchell Johnson ...the list goes on and on. When asked how many serial killers had a history of abusing animals, FBI Special Agent Alan Bradley answered, "The real question should be, how many have not?" The body of evidence linking animal abuse to human violence is convincing and growing. In study after study, a high incidence of animal abuse is found in the childhood histories of violent criminals, and embedded within the constellations of child abuse and domestic violence. Battered pets are a serious component of family violence and a sentinel indicator of other social problems and acts of interpersonal violence. While the recognition of these connections is not new (the nation's SPCAs started the child protection movement 125 years ago), the recognition that it takes all of us to form a more humane society is. Exciting recent initiatives are building interdisciplinary community collaborations that address the prevention, identification, intervention, and treatment of all forms of family violence. Animal care and control, child protection and domestic violence agencies are working together to: cross-train their caseworkers to recognize and report multiple forms of family violence increase animal abuse prosecution and penalties provide foster care services for animals belonging to human victims of violence educate the community about all forms of family violence

Please help the dogs of "SOSCoky" - the Canile of Santa Maria di Castellabate, Campania, Italy - in signing our petition. The area of the Canile is placed at a former rubbish-ground without infrastructure. There is no electricity and water. Many of the dogs are sick - suffering of Leishmaniose, Ehrlichose or other diseases. Already five years ago the municipials have promised a new area for the Canile, but 'till now nothing has happened. It is time for keeping promises now!! Join our petition please! Thank you!!
