Temple, TX — More than 100 participants came out to Wednesday’s Animal Cruelty Prevention and Emergency Animal Sheltering Seminar in Temple.
Those attending included veterinarians, members of the public, and various law enforcement agencies, seeking to learn how to better protect animals in the community. The event was put on by the ASPCA as a free training for the community. Some of the topics discussed included animal hoarding, dog and cock fighting, animal cruelty prosecution, and emergency animal sheltering.
“Puppy mills is a huge issue in the country. Hoarding is tremendous. Overt acts of cruelty, people just doing bad things to animals, that happens, dog fighting, cock fighting,” said Kathryn Destreza, ASPCA Investigations Director.
The two day event will continue and wrap up on Thursday.
