Do You

  • Sometimes feel scared of how your partner will act?
  • Constantly make excuses for your partner’s behaviors?
  • Always do what your partner wants you to do instead of what you want?
  • Believe that you can help your partner change if only you changed something about yourself?
  • Stay with your partner because you are afraid of what your partner would do if you broke up?

Pet Abuse

The family pet is one of comfort and companionship and also another victim of family violence. Many people will delay leaving their abuser for fear of the safety of their pet. They will use the family pet as a control device threatening to hurt or kill the pet in order to get what they want from the abused spouse. Alternatives to Violence has resources available to you and your beloved animals to make sure everyone is safe. We have access to shelters and foster programs to help your pet escape abuse as well.
