Could any one reading this forward this post to the proper person if that is not you. I am the Adoption Chair for a Herpetological Society. As the contact for adoptions I work closely with a number of agencies. (Animal controls, police and sheriffs departments and Humane societies to name some.) Lately one of the Humane officers has been requesting my presence/"expertise" at an occasional complaint site. While I have no problem with this, (Happy to help the cops and the critters) our board has some concerns. The reason for my post is a request for information about any organizations policies and/or practices as to how you handle complaints/abuse cases or aiding in rescue operations. Any information you could give me would be very helpful. Thanks in advance. If you would email me off the forum that would be great!
