PetSmart Charities® Commits $2.1 Million to Keep Domestic Abuse Survivors, At-Risk People and Their Pets Together During Periods of Transition

Domestic Violence shelters that allow women to bring their companion animals are doing a better job of serving their community, since we know that many women will not leave a violence situation if they can't escape with their animals.

If any DV shelter in New Mexico is interested in opening its doors to animals, Positive Links is here to help. We will help you develop your plans and policies, draft your grant requests, work with your local animal shelters and vets to set-up vet care, etc.

Here is just one of the numerous funding opportunities available to DV shelters that want to serve entire families:

“Bestiality remains legal in the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming, with bills pending in New Hampshire and Ohio, according to the Humane Society of the United States. ... No federal law bans bestiality — not spelled beastiality with an “a” for beast. Nov 30, 2015
Many animal loving organizations have had initiatives in this matter, but not yet has complete success has been achieved. Orangutans, which are unique species of Indonesia and Malaysia, are still being raped and sold with money.

We absolutely love Juno's Place! One of the many areas they focus on is The Link through their Speak Up campaign.

The shocking number of cruelty cases reported daily in the media is only the tip of the iceberg.
Most cases are never reported, and most animal suffering goes unrecognized and unabated.

You don't have to be a cop or humane agent to help fight animal cruelty, all you need is the courage to call them.

Help spread the word,
If you see Something, Speak UP!!!

Long Island Orchestrating for Nature - LION

Long Island Orchestrating for Nature - LION

A serial-killer in the making duct-taped fireworks to the chest of a Canada Goose at Silver Lake Park in Baldwin, NY. The explosive appeared to have been lit but was soaked in water, presumably when the cowardly perpetrator let go and the bird wisely escaped into the water.

The link between animal abuse and violence toward others has been well-documented by the FBI. Until the person or persons who strapped this firework to this goose are brought to justice, other animals and humans are in danger.

LION and PETA are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty charges of the person or persons who committed this horrific act.

Please donate toward this reward below. If it remains unclaimed, all funds will be redirected to LION's mission of helping animals on Long Island and beyond. ❤

Everybody wants to put their best face forward - even during COVID19 times. And for lots of us, that means putting a dog's face forward!

Our fabulous supporter, Raven Stitches, donated several of these adorable dog face masks to the Mutt Strutt. They were a HUGE hit!

People messaged and posted how much they wanted one. So, Margie Medeiros of Raven Stitches has agreed to make more.

You can purchase yours here: http://www.thelinknm.com/store.aspx

We're taking pre-orders, so it will take a little time for them to be made. All proceeds will go to Positive Links and will help pay for our upcoming trainings on The Link between animal abuse & human violence for law enforcement, animal control officers, social workers and others.

Reductions in reports of child abuse do not mean that there is less child abuse. Please check in with friends and family. Include children and animals in your queries. If you suspect something, report it asap!

#positivelinks

New U.S. data show a steep drop in reported cases of child abuse — but experts believe it conceals a surge of abuse taking place inside the home. With children largely out of sight during the lockdown, there’s little opportunity for people outside the home to report telltale signs of abuse.
