The International Society for Animal Forensic Sciences

The International Society for Animal Forensic Sciences was founded to advocate for the advancement and excellence in investigations involving crimes against animals. The Association will serve as a catalyst for investigators, animal control officers, law enforcement, veterinary personnel, and attorneys to access animal forensic scientists who can assist with animal cruelty and neglect investigations.

The executive board and global representatives are leaders in their respective fields of animal forensic science and are sought out by the public, media, and governments (local, state, and federal) for their expertise and knowledge.

The association is organized and operated exclusively for educational and scientific purposes, will provide guidance on setting standards for animal forensic sciences, and will serve as a global network for forensic scientists, investigators, veterinarians, and attorneys to exchange ideas, serve as mentors, and enhance their investigations.
