Welcome to my site. I have created this site to share my observations from working in the animal welfare profession. I served 8 years as an animal control officer, 3 years as a supervisor, and 22 years as a director. In those 33 years, I constantly asked myself if I had what it takes to survive this profession. If you are thinking of entering the animal welfare profession, this blog is for you as a insider’s guide to the trenches of animal welfare.
