Meet Your Humane Officers
HELPING ANIMALS IN NEED
April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month so it's timely that the Humane Society of the Sierra Foothills (HSSF) announces the implementation of a new program to help Placer County animals.
Three Humane Officers, all with the powers of peace officers, will be out in the community to prevent animal abuse by assisting and educating owners of animals at risk. According to Curt Ransom, HSSF Senior Humane Officer, “We work very closely with animal owners as most situations can be resolved cooperatively – a win-win situation”.
Although Humane Officers have the power to conduct searches and make arrests, the primary objective of HSSF’s staff is to identify problems and help the animal owners in getting the animal care needed before the problem becomes critical.
HSSF's Humane Officers work cooperatively with all county and local law enforcement and especially with Placer County Animal Services.
Residents with concerns about the care of an animal and/or would like to help support this new program can contact Mr. Ransom at firstname.lastname@example.org or 530.823.6828 or complete an on-line complaint form.
