Animal care and control agencies often spend the majority of their resources responding to complaints after incidents have occurred. What would happen if our agencies became more proactive?
This webinar highlights a community-focused non-law enforcement program conducted by plain clothes animal control officers. This "boots on the ground" program addresses the issues of animal overpopulation, animal abuse/neglect, and nuisance complaints with positive results.
We will also discuss an innovative spay/neuter program that can make your agency money while saving lives, as well as multiple ways your agency can do successful community outreach.
