We know this message is not the one many of you were hoping to receive. For others, it may be the challenging and difficult decision you hoped the HSUS might reach.

Large-scale animal seizures can be daunting for enforcement agencies and animal shelters alike. This course will help attendees prepare for a case from beginning to end, highlighting key ingredients for success. Specifically, we will briefly review how to build a case, plan ahead, execute a seizure, collect evidence, handle ongoing care and oversee case management. Discussing these critical components will help ensure the best possible outcome for the enforcement agency, rescue/shelter professionals and, most importantly, the animals.
