I took a class in animal control, a course designed to prepare to work in animal care and control programs in municipalities and other government agencies. We had two projects in class: one was to design an animal shelter and to give descriptions of the facility, the other was to write up two different SOP's (standard operating procedures). We had to put care and thought into the animal shelter design, thinking about the size of the shelter, what animals will be housed there, the placement of rooms, functionality.. I had undergone many revisions of my design! For the SOP's I based the protocols from my shelter design.
