Lollypop Farm: The Link Between Animal Abuse and Human Violence
Lisa made two presentations at Lollypop Farm’s conference in Rochester, NY on October 12, 2018. Her first presentation “Animal Abuse and the Community: How Professionals Can Work Together” focused on what professionals from a range of disciplines need to know about the relationship between animal maltreatment and other antisocial behavior. In her second presentation “Intervention Programs for Animal Crimes Offenders” she discussed the BARK program that she developed at the Animals and Society Institute. The 16-week program for misdemeanor animal maltreatment offenders is currently being piloted in Syracuse, NY and will launch in Rochester, NY in 2019.
