This is a good discription on being an animal control officer but I think what some people are looking for is the requirements such as, college degrees and what kind of classes you would need to take. Thats what I'm trying to find and most of the websites say the same thing. Kind of makes it hard to right a research paper haha. ^.^

Hello My Name is Lisa I want to be animal control officer. I am vouleetering in shelter right now. Wild cats seem to like me they come right up to me without a fight. they have feelings too and yes they do get scared but if they see a warm face like mine someone who looks different from them then they are not so scared. I am 47 years old I know that is getting up there but I love animals so much and would like to do curelty investations on people who hurt animals and leave them to die they is not fair! I need some help on what to do with the rest of my life and I think I want it to be with animals and I can finsih writing my book too. I have had all sort of animals growing up even a Donkey as a pet. Starving an animal to death that is not cool. They give so much love you try living the way they do maybe you will be more understanding and caring. How would you like it if you had no food no water no love you cant survive. Treat aniamls with respect they will treat you respect.

I am very interested in becoming an Animal Control Officer. I'm 22 but I have no idea where to start. I was going to take some criminal justice courses to get a knowledge of the laws. I was told that to become an ACO I would need a referal or reference from a cop. I don't know if thats true. If someone could help me out that would be great!

If you are interested in becoming an animal control officer(ACO), go and talk with your local police agency. Most ACO's have to carry a gun in the western states and have to know local laws/ordinances.

Depending on what your jurisdiction allows its officers to do, you may want to take Criminal Justice, Psychology, and Veterinary courses. English, and Business are also good courses, as they come in handy while writing reports and if you want to advance to management. Also check out the National Animal Control Association for its 2 level training course.

I'm only 16, but already know that I want to work with animals and help them for my future career. I think that I want to get into doing something like this, and want to make it more clear to people and animals should be treated as well as you would treat your own children
