Blount County Humane Society animal cruelty investigator Steven Phipps is need it in Blount County

AGENT/CRUELTY INVESTIGATOR STEVEN PHILIPS


Several recent incidents in Tennessee a show the clear link between animal cruelty and escalating acts of violence against other members of a family or community.
The small sampling of cases in Tennessee  illustrates what research has shown for years - acts of cruelty against animals are an indicator and predictor of violence toward other vulnerable members of a family, which often spills into the larger community.
As this connection becomes harder to dismiss, communities around the country, including in Blount County, are taking animal cruelty more seriously. Several animal cruelty investigations in the last year in Blount County and Tennessee have resulted in harsher convictions and sentencing.These acts were in conjunction with other offenses, which is consistent with the proven link between animal abuse and other crimes. Addressing these acts of maltreatment toward animals leads to more protected families, safer communities, and less violence in our state.


Other communities are joining the movement to recognize that animal abuse isn’t just about an animal victim. The Central Tennessee SPCA recently started a Humane Law Enforcement unit specifically to address animal abuse statewide, citing “the Lack of response in some counties” as a significant reason.
In Blount County ,animal cruelty investigator Steven Phipps,  has been the lead investigator for years and is seen as a heroe, in the fight against animal cruelty, a email we received call for more action.
