Leading an Effective Animal Cruelty Task Force
Recorded On: 06/16/2020
Have you ever been frustrated with the level of animal cruelty you witness in your career but don’t know where to turn for support within the community? This presentation will explain how to start a grass roots movement to make a positive change for the animals in our communities, especially in high crime areas where people see animals as property. We will focus on how to build cohesive relationships between law enforcement, animal welfare officers, and rescue groups.
