Whether responding in the field to release an animal wrongly caught, guiding someone through it over the phone, or setting an animal free after translocation, this webinar will equip you with the basic steps to follow to not only successfully release, but to reduce stress and injury to the animal as well. How you approach and release an entrapped animal can greatly impact the level of stress and potential injury they experience.  This webinar will provide instruction for how to release wrongly trapped animals (both domestic and wild) from trap types that include foothold, snares, body-gripping, and box or cage style in a variety of situations and in the most humane and least stressful manner possible. This webinar will also discuss developing an awareness of how these traps work and what tools and personal protection and precautions might be necessary.




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.







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.




Founded in 1954, the Humane Society of the United States and its affiliates around the globe fight the big fights to end suffering for all animals. Together with millions of supporters, the HSUS takes on puppy mills, factory farms, trophy hunts, animal testing and other cruel industries, and together with its affiliates, rescues and provides direct care for over 100,000 animals every year. The HSUS works on reforming corporate policy, improving and enforcing laws and elevating public awareness on animal issues.
