Albany County District Attorney's Office Animal Cruelty Taskforce Website
“The District Attorney’s Office is tasked with prosecuting
offenders who violate the law, and in cases of animal abuse or hoarding,
it is vital to hold offenders accountable while also ensuring these
crimes are never repeated. By forming this taskforce it is our goal to
make sure all responders are employing best practices in Albany County,
prioritizing prevention strategies in every community, and educating the
public about what they can do to help.”
