Default Animal Control Explorer Program

Has anybody heard of an animal control explorer program? For those not familiar, police explorers are teens generally 14-20 years old who learn about law enforcement by participating as volunteers with law enforcement agencies. I have heard of only one animal control agency that has explorers. I was just wondering if anybody else has animal control explorers.

It seems most animal control agencies have volunteers dedicated to the shelter part of animal control, the explorers does the other side of animal control like the field work and stuff like that.

Just curious.

I don't believe a program exists, unless it's on off shoot of a PD explorer program. The Explorer programs are part of the Boy Scouts and they limit what career fields are encompassed in the explorer program.

To the best of my knowledge the only explorer programs are, Fire (includes EMS) , PD & Sea Scouts. However I haven't been actively involved in scouting for 20 years.

There you go, check out the bottom of the page, it states Animal Control Explorer Post 538. The Department is Orange County Animal Control, it must be the only program of its kind, like I said I have never seen an animal control explorer program before this one.

Ok... I still think its most likely on off shoot or covered under the police explorer program.

Stay safe,

Fyr
