Protecting Your Pet
As part of Animal Protection Awareness Week, the Schiller DuCanto & Fleck Family Law Center and Center for Animal Law cosponsored a live webinar to over 50 attendees about protecting pets in domestic violence cases.  Dr. Rhonda DeLong (DePaul University College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences) addressed how pets connect to their families, how pets are impacted by domestic violence in the house, and how survivors of domestic violence are treated as pet owners when going to shelters.
