TNR - What's Working Across the State
Jane Guillaume, President & Executive Director, People for Animals
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is at the forefront of progressive animal welfare policy in NJ and no group is more responsible for this than People for Animals (PFA). Hear from Jane Guillaume, PFA's Executive Director, about current and pending county resolutions and municipal ordinances in effect as well as state laws and policies that work in favor of TNR. Learn about model shelter policies that support/promote TNR among their contracted municipalities and how to effectively advocate for TNR in your community by soliciting public support, and engaging elected officials, and responding to opposition. And learn about TNR in practice and how to negotiate challenging situations and raise public awareness. Model TNR ordinances will be provided to attendees.
Note: This course has been pre-approved for Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credits.
Jane Guillaume entered animal welfare in 2007 after having been a nurse (in human medicine) for 30 years. As Executive Director of People for Animals, Inc., she has worked to tear down barriers to spay/neuter wherever she finds them. By adding two additional stationary clinics (Robbinsville and Clayton) to the original Hillside clinic, and adding a Mobile Surgical program, Jane has helped PFA increase capacity from 6,000 surgeries annually in 2007 to over 22,000 in 2016. Jane enjoys advocating for animals at the municipal and County levels, especially for humane public policy including feral cat population control programs.
