We've partnered with Palomar Family Justice Center's Animal Advocacy program to host a great awareness event on the link between animal abuse and domestic violence. It promises to be a fun day for pets and people!
If you can't make the event, but are still interested in supporting the program, head over here. To inquire about becoming a foster parent to pets affected by family violence, check out their Foster Network.
The Oklahoma Link Coalition "Intersection" conference was a huge success! On November 7, 2017, over 100 professionals from a wide variety of fields, including law enforcement, criminal justice, domestic violence, animal organizations, veterinary, and social services, came together to learn about the LINK and how to work collaboratively to reduce violence in our state.
The event was covered by a number of news outlets, bringing larger awareness to Oklahomans of the link between animal abuse and family and community violence.
Thank you to the Kirkpatrick Foundation for supporting both animal and human well-being in the state of Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Link Coalition promotes collaboration, cooperation, public awareness, and education to end violence against people and animals by recognizing the link between human and animal abuse. The Coalition is a project of the Kirkpatrick Foundation under its Safe & Humane initiative.
