Euthanasia By Injection Workshops -2022

Euthanasia by Injection in Animal Shelters

The Illinois Animal Welfare Federation presents Euthanasia by Injection training for animal shelter and animal control workers. This workshop meets the training requirements for the Certified Euthanasia Technician license in the State of Illinois.  It is also approved training in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Wisconsin.  Registration is limited to those working in companion animal welfare and control.

Euthanasia means a humane and stress-free end of life for the animals in shelter care.  The IAWF intends to provide those workers who must euthanize the proper training in a supportive and compassionate environment to attain that desired result. 

In this workshop, you’ll learn about anesthetics and legend drugs, anatomy, proper restraint, injection techniques, equipment, worker safety, legal requirements  and verification of death.   Instruction will be through lecture, discussion, videos, and hands-on lab work.  You’ll watch and will perform animal euthanasia. 

Registration fee is $300 for non-members and $150 for IAWF organizational members.
