SPCA will hold seminar

The Putnam County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) will hold its second Animal Cruelty Watch Seminar at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 9 in Carmel. The seminar will explain how to identify animal cruelty, how to report it and the laws that protect animals in New York.

The free seminar will be held at the Paladin Training Center, 39 Seminary Hill Road. Among the planned speakers are Chief Ken Ross of the Putnam County SPCA, Putnam County Sheriff Donald Smith, Putnam County District Attorney Robert Tendy and retired NYPD Capt. Andrew DeStefano. To reserve a seat, email [email protected] or call 845-520-6915.

Although its officers have law-enforcement power, the Putnam County SPCA is a non-profit corporation that is funded entirely by donations.
