Optional Workshop - Additional Fee Required
Learn how animal advocates can help animal control and law enforcement in prosecuting animal cruelty cases. Budget cuts, pet overpopulation, and increased awareness of animal cruelty issues have had a direct impact on our shelters and enforcement officers. Animal control and law enforcement agencies are receiving a considerable number of complaints regarding animal cruelty and the public via the media and social networking are pressing for an increase in prosecution of these cases. This can be overwhelming for an agency, especially when the budget does not provide for additional staff or training to assist. These factors can create a reluctance to investigate animal cruelty cases, but you can make a difference and we will teach you the tools and techniques to assist your local community.
