Consultant Alastair Keen brings to Animal Kind
an impressive animal welfare investigative
background. Alastair began his career in the
Royal Military Police, and inspected animal establishments for local authorities before becoming an RSPCA inspector. He was swiftly promoted to its special operations unit and worked all over Europe combating organised cruelty such as animal fighting and wildlife crime, CITES offences and live animal transport. Alastair went on to direct operations at the Irish SPCA, managing its national dog warden service, animal centre and inspectorate, and campaigning to change the law to tackle Ireland’s cruel puppy farming trade. Alastair has extensive experience in designing and delivering animal welfare training for police, inspectors and other animal welfare law enforcers.
