This session focuses on improving public perception of animal control officers and animal shelters. Do you know where the terms “dog catcher” and “dog pound” came from and why these negative and inaccurate stereotypes still exist? Learn new ways to implement proactive community engagement initiatives and see how the work of animal control officers intertwines with and contributes to the success of the Pets for Life program. “Socially conscious” and “no-kill” shelters are common in our industry, but do you know the difference between the two? Use what you learn in this seminar to implement change in your community and the culture of your department. The future of animal welfare will be captured in this action-packed session!
This program has been approved for 1 hour of continuing education credit for NACA members.
