945-19 Child and Animal Abuse

Date: Monday, January 22nd, 2018 6:00PM - 9:00PM
Facilitator: Theresa Johnson
Location: Cornerstone Building 402 2nd Street SE Canton, Ohio 44702

It is difficult to imagine a time in our country when there was an agency devoted to preventing cruelty to animals, but no comparable agency devoted to the protection of children. In 1874, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was formed. It was this agency that filed the first case of child abuse and neglect in the United States court system. The agency did so because, at that time, there were no children’s rights organizations.

Fortunately, things have changed but there is still a connection between agencies that protect children and agencies that protect animals. In this training we will learn about the correlation between abuse of children and abuse of animals. We will talk about recognizing the signs of child and animal abuse and the characteristics of children and animals living in abusive homes. We will explore the connections between child and animal abuse and domestic violence. We will also talk about dangerous and vicious animals living in homes with children; and about why dogs bite. Most importantly, we will use the knowledge gained in this session to talk about family safety with animals.
