Book Review: Animal Control Management: A New Look at a Public Responsibility
Any new director of an animal care and control department—regardless of whether she has longtime experience or is coming into her position from another field entirely—is likely to have lots of questions as she examines what about the agency is working smoothly and what needs to be improved. What are the advantages of managing a municipal animal control authority through the public works department versus the health department? What skills should an animal control manager have, and what are some questions a new department leader should ask when assessing top job priorities? What are the basic forms and records an animal control department needs? How should its website function?
It’d be difficult to come up with a question about modern animal control that’s not addressed in Stephen Aronson’s comprehensive new book, Animal Control Management: A New Look at a Public Responsibility.
