Start as early as possible helping animals. Read a lot about them, learn to understand them, and see what's going on with animals in your town. It's also a good idea to volunteer or work at a veterinary office, animal shelter or some type of law enforcement establishment. And remember, it takes a certain kind of person to do this job. You have to be able to keep a cool head and not show anger when dealing with people who hurt animals. It certainly isn't glamorousyou have to get down and dirty every day!
I also highly recommend going to college. It is good to take a few criminal justice classes or animal behavior classes. But I think most importantly, you must have compassion and respect for animals. Check out our How to Become an HLE Agent for more tips!
