Columbus Dispatch opinion piece by Sue Villilo highlights the increased ‘high danger’ domestic violence calls during the pandemic – at the same time funding is slashed.  LLS Choices for Domestic Violence services hotline has seen a 16% increase in the number of high danger calls (high likelihood of serious harm or killed by abuser) during the pandemic – yet their budget will be cut 36% from the Victims of Crime Act grant.  The increased danger to human victims means an increase to animals in homes where there is family violence.  https://www.dispatch.com/story/opinion/2021/03/03/opinion-high-danger-domestic-violence-calls-up-during-covid-funding-slashed/6885221002/?utm_source=dispatch-Daily%20Briefing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=daily_briefing&utm_term=list_article_headline
