WELCOME to the 6th Annual National Animal Cruelty Prosecution Conference


In partnership with the Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys’ goal is to provide prosecutors and law enforcement with the requisite skills to strengthen links between the criminal justice system and the community by protecting our most vulnerable victims and to enhance prosecutors’ ability to successfully identify and prosecute animal cruelty and animal fighting cases. This year’s conference focuses not only on the basics of animal abuse prosecution, but also tackles new and emerging issues facing criminal justice stakeholders today.

The Conference will be held in Austin, Texas on the dates of September 14-16th, 2016. We look forward to seeing you there!
