If you’ve watched Animal Planet or Nat Geo you have seen programs highlighting the work that dedicated, trained people do to make our world a better place for the animals who share our planet.

The Certified Animal Control Officer (ACO) Course approved by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, meets the requirements of the N.J.A.C. 8:23A-2.2 statute for appointment as an ACO by a New Jersey Municipality.
