Abstract

In this first blog in a series of six co-authors Di Turgoose and Dr Ruth E. McKie outline their recent (2019) work on pets/companion animals and domestic violence and abuse. In essence Ruth and Di have started a conversation about, and have called into question the idea of 'persons' specifically who and what counts as a victim/survivor in domestic violence and abuse ‘cases’.
