Animal cruelty/neglect investigations and prosecutions attract widespread attention; however, they can be difficult to investigate. Successful prosecution of crimes against animals requires a unique set of skills and knowledge. Investigations are often contingent on a cooperative effort between local law enforcement, humane and animal control officers. This workshop will take the investigator from the initial crime scene through testifying at a jury trial.

CCADT Deploys To Nine Wildfires Since Late June
Since late June, the Central CA Animal Disaster Team has deployed to nine wildfires in our region - Erskine Fire (Kern County); Curry, Green, Goose, Mineral, Sunny fires (Fresno County); Serpa, Fork fires (Madera County), and Cedar Fire (Tulare County). Our volunteers have worked very hard in triple-digit weather, staying up late at night to intake animals, and showing compassion to people who have evacuated to the Red Cross shelter or just dropped of their pets for us to care for if staying with family or friends.
A special THANK YOU to the following CCADT volunteers who have deployed to these fires to help those pet owners in need: Leslie Harris, Ardell Perkins, Susan Jackson, Sandy Bailey, Betty Wong, Christy Cronin, Dennis Holloway, Pat Noble, Courina Hughes, and Annette Omachi. Also, THANK YOU to our Operations Director - Mary Reimer, Logistics Director - Steven Bell, and our new Volunteer Coordinator - Deanne Bell. Without all of you, CCADT would not be able to make a difference our pet owners lives! - Naomi E. Flam, CCADT CEO
