Dr. Cathy Reimers Ph.D., psychologist and her sister, Diana Dorsch, as co-host, explore how dysfunction in a family can cause problems in their pets. We will look at the relationship between child abuse and animal abuse and define “animal cruelty syndrome” and its underlying family dynamics. Did you know that the incidence of animal abuse in a family could signal child or domestic abuse?  Tune in to gain a better understanding of the causes of the abuse of our four-legged family members. The pet or family you save may be your own.
