Mariana Sunnyvale,

Mariana, I hope you don't even get a pet, let alone a job caring for them. You are an animal cruelty case just waiting to be filed!

You are one that should never become an ACO due to your comment you just left. How dare you think of animals as just a caged animal with no quality of life. Find another profession to go into because animals, no matter what they are, need someone who cares, and you are not one of those special people.

So what do you need to study? How many years of college or what? I thought all you had to do was take care of them and clean their cage before they put them down bc they aren't wanted and yes you could still help distressed or endangered animals? Do I need to take a criminal justice class?

animal Behavior college trains in this area also criminal justice classes and volunteering in shelters or for a vets office , all good places to start , and my advice to anyone in college or high school , Your age group is the number one age group to dump dogs in high kill shelters , please do not get a pet until you are done with school and are ready to settle down , unless you can comit to an animal for life they have no business with you until you can , please tell your friends and help us minimize the number of twenty somethings abandoning their dogs and cats in high kill shelters

I am an Animal Control Officer in California. I am also a Registered Veterinary Technician. My recommendation for getting into this field is to gain experience with all types of species through volunteering for wildlife rehab groups, veterinary hospitals, and shelters. Also, it is very beneficial to pay and put yourself through the mandatory training for the career. Classes in Arrest, Search, and Seizure & Firearms Training along with State Humane Law Enforcement Academies will put you ahead in the hiring/recruitment process. Classes in Animal First Aid, Animal Behavior, and Animal Handling are also suggested.

I am 25 years old and have a bachlors in biology and a degree in wildlife conservation. I don't know much about what background you need for an animal control officer but I would suggest getting a job working in a pet store or volunteering at a local vet clinic or animal shelter. It is important to begin developing your skills of working with and handling various animals.

This was some really good information. I am only 15 and i found it very informitive. But i still don't know where you go to get the training. This is something i have wanted to do since i was 11 years old. this is something because of my love for animals. Not the money. It is not right the way that some people treat animals, they have feeling to. (just like humans) appreciate the information but if someone could tell me where you go to get the training that would be great.
