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 criminally. 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.
