Over the past 30 years, researchers and professionals in a variety of human services and animal welfare disciplines have established significant correlations between animal abuse, child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, elder abuse and other forms of violence. Mistreating animals is no longer seen as an isolated incident that can be ignored: it is often an indicator or predictor of crime and a “red flag” warning sign that other family members in the household may not be safe. Combating animal cruelty in your jurisdiction not only makes your community safer for animal victims, but for humans as well. Creating a task force in your jurisdiction involving police, prosecutors, veterinarians and other animal welfare professionals can help streamline animal abuse cases, resulting in more successful outcomes.

Animal Hoarding affects communities across the globe. Although it is not a new phenomenon, authorities have been employing new and innovative ways to approach the problem.

However, in order to effect positive change for all parties involved, communities must be proactive instead of reactive. Hoarders have a 100% recidivism rate without appropriate intervention. The time to think about how hoarding will impact your community isn’t when the case is reported to the media. This portion of the course will outline some of the proactive measures your community can employ to handle some of its best-kept secrets (hoarders) and will review recent trends in establishing community-based responses.
