NEW BEDFORD ANIMAL CONTROL
Equine cruelty cases fall outside the experience and comfort level of many law enforcement agencies and prosecutors. They can be complex and protracted, involving hundreds of large and potentially dangerous animals with chronic and serious health and behavioral challenges. Presented by the Animal Legal Defense Fund, this webinar draws upon the experiences forged through the longtime partnership between a humane law enforcement agency and an equine rescue and rehabilitation organization as they share procedural best practices for successfully and humanely addressing these cases from report to rehoming.
This webinar has been certified by the National Animal Care & Control Association and is approved for 1 Continuing Education Unit. Please refer to your NACA membership portal for current CEU submission process.
