The Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County has teamed up with Memphis Animal Services to train city workers in animal handling and the law.

MAS’ animals care technicians are working with Whitney Jones, animal care manager with the humane society, on handling techniques including positive animal interaction, appropriate use of catchpoles and others humane ways to work with dogs and cats.

Jones, a certified dog trainer and veterinary technician, has 13 years of experience in animal care.

City Court Judge Tarik Sugarmon has spoken with MAS animal control officers about the law and their role in the justice system enforcing animal cruelty and nuisance laws and regulations about animal vaccinations and licenses.

The sessions are part of a comprehensive review of the city shelter’s employee training.
