A new infographic from K9 of Mine provides data on animal abuse in the United States, in an effort to help animal lovers everywhere learn how to put a stop to pet abuse.
The How to Prevent Pet Abuse infographic was created with data from the HSUS (Humane Society of the United States), detailing pet abuse statistics and prevention strategies.
Some key points in the infographic reveal that:
- In media-reported animal cruelty cases, 65% of cases involve dogs and 18% involve cats.
- Over one millions pets are abused or killed each year in connection with domestic violence.
- 71% of domestic violence victims report that their abuser also targeted their pet.
