The National Animal Care & Control Association and Code 3 Associates have partnered to develop a higher standard in animal care and cruelty investigation training: The National Animal Control and Humane Officer (NACHO) Training Academy.
Chemical Immobilization Workshop
If you must do it, do it properly and professionally. Animal Control Officers must use chemical immobilization for capture purposes only as a last resort. When you have reached your final option, do you know how to safely achieve chemical capture lessening the liability for you and your employer?
