This short seminar provides an overview of zoonotic diseases – infections shared between.animals and people – where they are, why, how, and why they are a concern to animal care and control personnel. It provides an ideal background for animal control officers, animal care professionals or any justice professional/first responder who may intermittently have to engage with animals.
During this webinar, participants will:
- Gain insight into the major groups of zoonotic pathogens and diversity of the disease they cause
- Gain an understanding of risk factors for zoonoses
- Learn about the importance of, and techniques for, prevention of zoonotic diseases.
The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.
