HUMANE SOCIETY AGENT TRAINING

The Ohio Animal Welfare Federation offers Humane Society Agent training in compliance with OAC 109:2-15-02 using curriculum approved by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission. It is intended only for persons who have been approved by a county humane society to become a Humane Society Agent, other law enforcement, or others who are associated with a law enforcement agency and have a legitimate need for this information to promote animal welfare. Completion of this training is only the first step in becoming a commissioned Humane Society Agent. All Humane Society Agents must:

  1. Be appointed by a county humane society organized under section 1717.05 of the Ohio Revised Code; 
  2. Have that appointment approved by either the mayor of the municipal corporation or the probate judge of the county where they intend to serve; and  
  3. Comply with all other requirements provided by law.
