On May 30, the Regina Leader-Post ran an article on the issues found in CRU-sponsored research. An important finding: "Nearly all of the human service agencies that participated said concerns over animal welfare impacts individuals’ decision to leave violent situations, and 77 per cent of them knew an individual who didn’t leave for that reason." You can also read the full research report, "The Link: Interpersonal Violence and Abuse and Animal Safekeeping".
