Animal Service professionals are under allot of pressure in providing public safety, animal welfare and positive public relations. We provide a unique and specialized, important service with relatively small budgets and of course, the stereotyping.
Legislation is changing more substantially each session and we have to be current and accurate when interpreting and enforcing animal law along with regulations regarding our animal shelters and the care and handling of the hundreds of thousands that go through our doors every year. We follow and promote the laws that protect and regulate animals but we have little voice in our State's Capitol.
This is a place where we can be informal and off the record to educate each other, discuss legislation (and legislators) and support one another in a changing and dynamic profession.
Post your news, your comments and your ideas; we can change the "top down" approach in protecting our staff, our facilities and of course, our animals.
This blog is for all of you out there that need a venue that's about our unique profession and a place to talk about it.
Have something to bring up? Let's talk about it!
All comments are moderated, you know the drill.
