Resolution in animal cruelty response can take the form of criminal citation, compliance plans, or access to services. In striving for resolution, cases are best served when enforcement professionals can rely on trained veterinarians, animal rescue and sheltering entities, and community service organizations to lend their particular expertise to each case.

In this webinar, you will learn—through case studies and firsthand testimony—how the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Collaborative Response Project helped foster collaborative relationships for one community through training, grant funding, and hands on support.

Encourage animal control officers, veterinarians, traditional law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, and community organizations in your area to tune in and explore the ways you can start building sustainable partnerships on behalf of animals today.  Be the first to learn how to apply to participate in the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s 2023 Collaborative Response Project.
