We have a program like this in Melbourne. Often those that perpetrate DV will harm the animal as a way to get at the victim.

This should be a n idea used all over. We know that abusers will hurt animals but also women often stay so as to not have yo leave them behind . I hope this becomes more widespread.

Actually, I would like to see emergency shelters that accept pets too. During last round of tornadoes here, there were people who refused to come in when they should have, because no shelter would accept their pets. I do know of several abuse survivors who stayed when they couldn't move anywhere safely with their animals. We see them as our children, and it's wonderful what Amsterdam's doing on that front!

People who are abusive to animals are only one step away from abusing human's they need to be punished severely.
