The Alliance For The Safety of Animals And People (ASAP)

In New York City, we are only beginning to acknowledge the connection between animal abuse and other forms of family violence, such as intimate partner violence and child maltreatment. In March of 2007, CONNECT created The Alliance For The Safety of Animals And People (ASAP) to begin exploring ways in which the human and animal service professionals can work together to train, raise awareness among service providers and the larger community, as well as explore the creation of model programming to best serve the needs of women, children and companion animals in families experiencing domestic violence.
