Did you know that there is extensive research that proves there’s a strong link between family violence and animal abuse? People abused by people often abuse animals, and people who abuse animals also often abuse people—it’s an endless cycle.

In this month’s episode of EPAS Unleashed, we sit with Anabel and Marissa from the EmpOURment Project at the El Paso Center Against Sexual and Family Violence to talk about the link between human and animal violence, different types of violence and abuse, what to look out for, and how to seek out help or offer support.

Also, be sure to check out their podcast, La Voz De La Gente on Spotify!

If you find yourself in a situation where you need help or support, or would like to provide support to a loved one, call the CASFV hotline at (915) 593-7300, which is available 24/7.
