Provincial Association of Transition Houses and Services of Saskatchewan (PATHS), in partnership with the Saskatchewan SPCA, is conducting research on the connections between animal ownership (pets, service animals, and large animals/livestock) and domestic violence/abuse in Saskatchewan.
For our domestic violence service provider survey, we are specifically looking for input from lawyers, mediators, and others who work with people experiencing violence/abuse.
We have three other surveys for: survivors, the general public, and other types of service providers. In addition, confidential telephone interviews are being conducted with survivors.
Data collection closes March 31st.
