The Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter is hosting a special community presentation at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in Fuller Lodge.
Tammy Feibelkorn, who chairs a state committee on this issue, will talk about “The Link Between Animal Abuse and Human Violence,” how the state of New Mexico is leading an effort to address this link and what the community might consider doing in Los Alamos.
Because of FOS’ concern for animal welfare in general, and because they want to contribute to making the community an even better place in which to work and live, they have invited speaker Tammy Feibelkorn, chair of the New Mexico Forming Positive Links Committee, to speak.
Research supports the notion that healthy human/animal relationships enhance physical and psychological health and teach people how to understand another being and how to express compassion, empathy and nurturance. Research also indicates that an individual’s mistreatment of an animal parallels unhealthy, and sometimes even violent, relationships with other humans.
This link between animals and humans is the focus of the presentation and discussion.
