Pets and Domestic Violence
Pets are often the forgotten sufferers of domestic violence. Many people escaping abusive relationships are afraid to leave their beloved animal companions behind because of what may happen to them. Nic talked to Matt French from the RSPCA about the Safe Beds for Pets program, which takes in the pets of domestic violence sufferers. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, you can call the Domestic Violence Line on 1800 656 463.
