Animal Abuse and Interpersonal Violence
The link between animal abuse and interpersonal violence has long been proven, and increasingly, the Ottawa Humane Society is working with other social agencies in Ottawa to make sure that efforts are coordinated in situations where violence exists in a household that may have children and animals.
If a child appears to be suffering from abuse and/or neglect.
If a child appears to be suffering from abuse and/or neglect, please contact the Children's Aid Society in Ottawa at 613-747-7800.
