What is the Colorado LINK Project? Is animal cruelty a crime in Colorado? What should I do if I am aware of the maltreatment of an animal? Are all acts of animal maltreatment indicators or predictors of a person being violent towards people? When should I be concerned about a child’s treatment of animals? Don’t some children unintentionally harm animals? What might it mean if a child or youth is engaging in more serious or repeated acts of animal cruelty? What steps should be taken when children or adolescents abuse animals? Do Colorado animal cruelty statutes include provision for ordering evaluation and mental health treatment for animal cruelty offenders? What is the best form of treatment for an animal cruelty offender? Is there a relationship between animal abuse and family violence and can this information be used in legal proceedings? What resources exist for the animals of domestic violence victims? How can I be involved with the Link in my own community?
