Maddie’s Veterinary Forensics Conference

A Focused Look at the Vital Role of Veterinary Forensics in Animal Hoarding Investigations

Veterinary forensic science is a rapidly growing field that’s expanding our ability to investigate and prosecute animal cruelty and neglect. In April 2014, Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program will partner with the ASPCA to bring you our Veterinary Forensics Conference held at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine in Gainesville, Florida.

At this event, we will explore the fascinating and disturbing world of animal hoarding, complete with an investigation into the motivations and perspectives of people who hoard and the impacts on the animal victims; looking at the roles of veterinarians, animal welfare workers, law enforcement, municipal government, social workers, and psychologists in hoarding interventions.
