This year Heart of Phoenix will host our 5th Annual Animal Control Training for WV, Ohio and Kentucky in St Albans, WV at Sunday Stables on June 7th beginning at 11am until 5pm.

This class will cover the handling of equines and livestock. It will cover legal considerations for cases involving horses and livestock. There is an expanded “hands on” portion this year to be sure officers will be able to safely handle these large animals when needed.

We offer West Virginia’s Statewide Animal control and law enforcement training program each year in the spring at no cost to officers or counties.

This program receives In-Hours credit for officers statewide (WV), as well as for CLE credit, and it provides attendees with the only equine neglect and cruelty training in the state, as well as handling safety training.

Attendees receive an easy access basic care manual, as well as halters and lead ropes, if needed.
