The sad reality
is that domestic abuse – whether human or animal

Task Force of Family Violence of Milwaukee, Inc.
joined forces several years ago to educate the community
about the link between animal cruelty and domestic
Education Director of the Wisconsin Humane Society
and Carmen Pitre, Executive Director of The Task
Force on Family Violence of Milwaukee, Inc. are
available for media interviews on Friday, November
25 to discuss ways to develop positive relationships
between individuals and animals as well as discuss
signs that indicate someone is abusing an animal.
