Identifying cruelty is only half the battle.  When prosecution is necessary, much more needs to be done.  AWMS staff and consultants include sworn Humane Society Police Officers (PA) capable of assisting police and District Attorneys in investigation and prosecution, veterinary staff experienced in cruelty investigation and prosecution support and testimony, and a sheltering service network capable of providing safe and secure housing for seized animals while maintaining proper chain of custody.

The decision to prosecute a cruelty case should be decided by the crime, not by whether a veterinarian can be found to testify or a space found in a kennel to house an animal victim of cruelty.  AWMS can ensure that law enforcement has access to all these things and more, dependably and affordably.  Contact AWMS for more information about our cruelty law enforcement support services.
