Welcome to the Colorado LINK Project !

The Link refers to the fact that abusive behavior can manifest in many ways, creating overlaps among child maltreatment, maltreatment of at-risk adults, interpersonal violence, animal maltreatment and criminality. When the human-animal bond is broken by neglect, abuse or violence both humans and animals are victims. The implications for human and animal welfare necessitate viewing the Link as a public safety and human and animal welfare issue.

The Colorado LINK Project website has been created to provide information and resources for communities and professionals to better understand and respond to “the Link” related issues of public safety and human and animal welfare in Colorado.
