PEI Humane Society Warns of People Impersonating Animal Protection Officers

The Prince Edward Island Humane Society has issued a warning about individuals who are falsely claiming to be Animal Protection Officers and contacting members of the public to provide incorrect information related to animal welfare. The Society advised that their Animal Protection Officers wear a uniform and drive marked vehicles, always identify themselves in phone calls and never work in plain clothes or use personal vehicles. The organization is urging anyone who suspects they have been contacted by someone misrepresenting themselves as an Animal Protection Officer to contact them immediately via phone or email.
