Team Allie with a big news update. WTSP Channel 10 will be airing on 11/26/19 at 11 p.m. an investigative report that takes HB621 – Allie’s Law and ties together the direct connection of Animal Abuse to Child Abuse and Domestic Violence Abuse. We have been told that they researched over the past few months, the link we refer to as the Toxic Triad. In their 10 county sampling area, that have found direct ties to animal abuse to child abuse and domestic violence abuse in 8 of those counties.
Records were often hard to acquire as you have to look at cases, but the Link does exist, it is why we need to have a reporting law, so our veterinarians can help fight all forms of abuse. This is part of their One Health initiative and is important to their human clients as well as their animal clients.
Thank you to our friends and supporters at WTSP Channel 10 News.
