Protect our pets from the abuser too!

Finally--judges who will help us look after our pets!!! Great story, read below: > News > Nation -- U.S. laws consider pets in domestic violence cases: "Maine, Vermont and New York were the first states to enact laws allowing judges to include pets in protection orders, which require abusers to stay away from their victims. The New Jersey and Illinois legislatures are considering similar measures.

“The desire to protect a pet is often a deterrent for women or victims leaving a situation like this, because they're afraid if they do, their pets will be harmed,” said Sherry Lane of Caring Unlimited, a shelter in Sanford, Maine."
