Alley Cat Allies sponsored a visit by nationally recognized animal services expert Mitch Schneider of Humane Network to our Future Five Shelter Partner Johnson County Animal Control on February 24 25, 2015.

“We are delighted to have Mitch Schneider here working with our staff!” said Michael Delp, Director of Johnson County Animal Control. “We are proud of our live release rate for cats and dogs and are constantly striving to learn and do even better for the animals and citizens of our community. Mitch brings experience and expertise that can help us in our efforts to continually improve our lifesaving work.”

Mitch Schneider is the former manager of Washoe County Regional Animal Services in Reno, Nevada. He is a frequent speaker at conferences and travels to many different communities across the country to give presentations and provide training for humane officers on techniques proven to create efficient and effective operations.

Since Johnson County Animal Control was selected as a participant in our Future Five: Shelter Partners to Save Cats’ Lives program we have been supporting their efforts to improve the live-release rate for cats over the past year and a half. Bringing Mitch Schneider out to work with the great team at Johnson County Animal Control is just one more way we can support them in their work for the cats of the community.


Schneider met with staff, conducted ride-alongs with officers, and delivered training sessions on February 24 25 at Johnson County Animal Control.
