What would happen if you paid closer attention to the family pet when you responded to a domestic violence call, checked in on an older adult being taken care of by a caregiver, visited a home where allegations of child abuse were made? If you did find something unusual would you call someone or would you say nothing?

At the end of this presentation, participants will have a greater understanding of:

  1. What to look for to determine if an animal has been cruelly treated.
  2. What to do if one suspects abuse.
  3. The importance of communication and information sharing.
