Animal cruelty prevention seminar

In a joint initiative aimed at preventing animal cruelty, Safe Communities Algarve and the GNR police will be holding a seminar on February 4 at the Conrad Hotel, Quinta do Lago, from 4pm to 7pm.

The event will be opened by Loulé mayor Vitor Aleixo with introductions by Coronel Silva Gomes, Commandant of the GNR Faro District Command and David Thomas, president of Safe Communities Portugal.

A panel of government and non-government speakers will address ways of preventing animal cruelty.

The subjects to be covered include the work of the GNR’s SEPNA unit concerning the rescue of animals and enforcement of laws; cruelty to pet animals and judiciary practice in the public prosecution perspective; animal welfare; the work of charities in animal rescue and the relationship between dog behaviour and cruelty.

Following this there will be a question and answer session. The event will be in English and entry is free.

As this is the first seminar of its type in the Algarve, it is likely to be heavily subscribed and reservations are essential.
