GWINN, Mich. (WZMQ) – The Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development is partnering with a local animal shelter to provide training on animals. Part of Michigan Humane, UPAWS is hosting a course training community members and even law enforcement on identifying animal cruelty.
The course will cover the humane use of common animal-capturing equipment, dog behavior de-escalation tricks, and disaster response.
“They’re equipped with the law enforcement side of handling that but they wanted an opinion from someone who works with animals every day. Does the animal look sick, does the animal look healthy is it underweight just kind of assessing its situation whether or not they think it constitutes neglect,” commented Shelter Operations Coordinator Ryan McLaren.
There is no cost for this training and the training will take place on August 14th, from 9 am to 4 pm.
