Exploring the relationship between animal abuse and interpersonal violence.

“When animals are abused, people are at risk.

When people are abused, animals are at risk.”

- Phil Arkow

As an animal welfare organization, the Saskatchewan SPCA works to prevent animal cruelty.

Research demonstrates that when animals are abused, people may be at risk; when people are abused, animals may be at risk.


To protect animals, we also need to help the families affected by violence. We are building partnerships to assist all victims of violence and abuse.


If you are in danger, call 911 immediately.
