You may have heard about the link between animal abuse and violence directed toward humans but how much do we really know about animal abuse, the perpetrators, or what to do to put an end to it? Over the course of the past two decades researchers have documented a myriad of factors associated with animal abuse. Unfortunately, while some of this information has made its way to those people who can do something about it, many professionals have yet to learn about the antecedents and consequences, as well as the red flags and the solutions, for helping to stop animal abuse and neglect. The need to get the word out about how to recognize-and stop--animal abuse is precisely the reason we felt there was a need to write this book.

Silent Victims: Recognizing and Stopping Abuse of the Family Pet is designed to give professionals and laypersons an overview of the most critical scientific and anecdotal findings about the factors surrounding animal abuse. Presented in a user-friendly style, the goal is to provide readers with the findings and strategies that are the most useful and effective in everyday, real world settings. The research findings presented in this book include notable studies on animal abuse, perpetrators, and abusive environments, as well as the possible causes and outcomes thought to be linked to animal abuse. Included are discussions of recent research on the attitudes, perceptions and beliefs of animal abusers conducted by author Dr. Carlisle-Frank, in her work with the Foundation of Interdisciplinary Research and Education Promoting Animal Welfare [FIREPAW]. Coauthor Officer Tom Flanagan offers real life tales from the street, as well as strategies and techniques for recognizing and addressing animal abuse. Flanagan draws from his seminal work with the acclaimed Link-UP program which brings law enforcement together with multiple municipal agencies to cooperatively and effectively resolve problems involving animal abuse.
