Humane Society University is excited to partner with Prince George's Community College to Present:
Animal Cruelty 101: ANM-300
About the Training
Neglect comes in many forms and impacts animal care or animal services organizations every day, from phone calls about chained or neglected dogs, to free roaming strays or reports of large numbers of animals on a single property. Additionally, problems created by animal fighting and cruelty investigations don’t end at the crime scene – animal shelters must often house and care for the victims of crime, who are the living "evidence" in criminal trials.
In this course, participants will discuss identifying and responding to suspected cases of animal cruelty, neglect, or fighting as well as why these situations occur in the first place.
The course will provide tools for dealing with the aftermath of handling confiscated animals (such as housing, evaluation, and placement) from the following:
- Puppy Mills
- Illegal Animal Fighting
Participants will also explore how their organization can help curb and prevent these situations through public and humane education as well as interruption programs designed to reduce the occurrence of animal cruelty, neglect, and illegal animal fighting in their community.
- Handling Animal Cruelty and Neglect Reports from the Public
- Housing, Care, Evaluations, and Adoptions Programs for Victims of Cruelty, Neglect, and Illegal Animal Fighting Cases
- Humane Education and Interruption Programs
- Public Education and Community Outreach
