    In prosecuting animal cruelty offenses, success largely depends on the prosecutor’s witnesses testifying confidently and competently. (After all, our victims cannot take the stand for themselves!) Unfortunately, testifying in trial is not a natural-born skill, and individuals involved in the animal welfare community—animal service, veterinarians, and animal shelter staff—do not have nearly enough opportunities to practice it.

    In this webinar, Oregon Animal Cruelty Deputy District Attorney Jake Kamins will give you the tips you need to present your testimony effectively and efficiently, always keeping in mind his “golden rule” (TELL THE TRUTH!) You will learn how to prepare for the big day, what questions to ask in advance, and how to keep yourself calm and composed even under the harshest cross-examination.

    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.
