Animal Control Management: A New Look at a Public Responsibility

by

Animal Control Management: A New Look at a Public Responsibility Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is the first of its kind to discuss in detail the actual management of local animal control programs as opposed to the care of the animals. It covers financial, personnel, legal, health, and safety issues that animal control directors and management staff need to know in providing direction and oversight of animal control programs. Chapters examine selected topics in which the author assesses strengths and weaknesses and offers new insights and strategies for more effective management. For example, the two chapters on contracting discuss the steps in the process, strategies, and suggested provisions in the written agreement to make the program more effective. The animal law chapters explain the basis for the laws, and highlight those provisions, that if enacted into law, can strengthen enforcement options. In addition, the author discusses and assesses interacting with the public and the media, liability issues, wildlife problems, and the politics of animal control.

Book News Annotation:

An administrator in local and then state governments for many years, Aronson shares his experiences with animal control programs and those of others inside and outside government concerned with animal welfare, to suggest approaches and techniques that might help others in the field. He concentrates on administration, the use of management tools, and the delivery of services. Among his topics are types of animal control organizational arrangements, contracting for animal services, interacting with public and private entities and the citizenry, provisions in animal law, irresponsible pet owners and the politics of animal control, and wildlife and exotic animals as a management concern. He includes sample contracts and forms. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
