This webinar will discuss the importance of cross-sector collaboration in supporting domestic violence survivors and their pets. It will focus on overcoming barriers to creating pet-friendly programs at shelters and will cover everything from lack of space, to allergies and liability to funding. A successful pet-friendly program is possible and can become a fundraising tool by focusing on building collaborative partnerships and creating a thorough program plan. This webinar is intended for anyone who interacts with domestic violence survivors and/or their pets.
The National Law Enforcement Center on Animal Abuse was established by the National Sheriffs’ Association to provide law enforcement officers information on the realities of animal abuse and to promote their proactive involvement in the enforcement of animal abuse laws in their communities. Through our partners, the Center will serve as an information clearinghouse and forum for law enforcement on the growing problem of animal abuse and its link to other types of crimes, including violence against humans. The Center also promotes officer safety in officer-dog encounters through continuing education and training.
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.
