CAWS Meeting, Monday October 7th at 6pm at the Holbrooke in Grass Valley
Current Topic: How to Recognize Farm Animal Abuse and Neglect Seminar
Also, our free seminar will be on Wednesday Oct 23 from 3-5 pm at Animal Place, 17314 McCourtney Road in Grass Valley. Nevada County Animal Control as well as members of the DA’s office are invited to attend, as well as the public. We were happy to welcome Oliver Pong and Jesse Wilson from the DA’s office at our first seminar, as well as all of the Animal Control officers and Sgt. Brown. We had an excellent turn out from the public as well.
Guest speakers will be Captain Cynthia Machado from the Marin Humane Society and Jamie London, the Animal Care Director of the sanctuary.
Remember, participants provide helpful information and resources for future neglect cases. We hope that with the most recent abuse/cruelty case involving the horses, that our seminar proved to be beneficial to the Animal Control officers during that investigation as well as for the anticipated prosecution of those heinous acts.

Caws is a coalition of all local animal rescue groups, their supporters and individual animal activists and advocates working to end animal abuse and neglect and improve the quality of life for animals in Nevada County, California.
Anyone is invited to participate. It is a grass-roots organization asking people who care about animals to come to a meeting once a month, perhaps join a committee to fight animal abuse and neglect in whatever way moves them, send e-mails, letters, make a phone call when an important issues arise, to speak up for the animals, who cannot speak for themselves.
By joining together in numbers we can accomplish so much and make a difference. So little is asked for so great a gain.
There is a $20 voluntary membership fee.
