*****We are currently looking for community volunteer experts who are willing to field especially sticky questions. Do you know someone who is an expert on some aspect of dealing with specific types of animals? Do you know someone who really knows how to work with the government, legal, nonprofit terrain that works with animals?

If you know someone with experience or expertise in this subject, please encourage them to subscribe to follow the Ombudsman project that they are interested in assisting. The email information of community volunteers helping with the Ombudsman Service is always kept private and never sold. It is use to send Requests for Help that will automatically come to their email inbox and they can decide if they have helpful information to share regarding the Request for Help in the comment response section of that project.

DISCLAIMER: If you have an emergency situation, please call 911 or some other relevant professional or government agency.
We strive to work quickly, but the Ombudsman Service is not for immediate emergencies. Also, please note that all Ombudsman helping to answer inquiries are community volunteers who state that they have some experience or expertise in the various areas. Use your own judgement on what advice to follow and use the same caution as you would anywhere else on the internet. These community volunteers respond to inquiries as they would on a “forum” or “thread”. The helpful folks who assist you are not screened and are not volunteers. Share only information that you would feel comfortable sharing elsewhere on the internet. This is an online, Free service. Please let us know if anyone tries to charge you, pressures you to give personal information or insists on meeting in person. Stay safe & use caution.

Thank you for caring about your community by sharing your time, talent, experience & expertise to help others!
