The Best Friends Podcast Episode 3

Front Line Lifesaving during COVID-19
April 16th, 2020

It's National Animal Care and Control Appreciation Week and now, more than ever, we must appreciate the crucial work they do to save lives each and every day.

Animal control is always an essential service, especially during a pandemic, which means field services teams are shifting what they do and how they do it to ensure they're still providing services to the community in the face of social distancing while keeping both animals and people safe.

You'll hear three different perspectives on how COVID-19 is impacting the work of animal control officers, the front line ambassadors of animal services.

Guests this week:

  • Stephany Ramiro, Animal Control Specialist, Baytown, Texas
  • Scott Giacoppo, Director of National Shelter Outreach for Best Friends Animal Society and President of the National Animal Care and Control Association
