FVI was established in 2015 by a group of like-minded professionals built on the premise that protecting animals helps to protect all of us. Each subject matter expert brings their education, talents and experience to improve the field of animal cruelty investigation.
We envision a more humane society where all animals and all people are treated with kindness and respect. Unfortunately, some people abuse animals. Fortunately there are people like those of us at FVI who work towards justice.
WHAT WE DO
We provide comprehensive analysis, academic research, case file reviews, expert opinions, second opinions and training opportunities. We collaborate, inform and provide advice. We support investigations by law enforcement.
WHO WE ARE
We are the experts. We are staffed with trained professionals in the field of veterinary forensic evaluation and have testified in court with regards to all manner of investigations of animal abuse, neglect and aggravated cruelty.
We are among the very few providers of independent thorough and complete investigative analysis in the area of animal cruelty investigations. We have a track record of critical time-sensitive and detailed opinions that meet and exceed the expectations of our clients. We answer the questions others ask, and we do that well.
HOW WE CAN HELP
With years of experience, we work collaboratively with prosecutors, law enforcement, attorneys, animal control agencies, animal welfare organizations, social service professionals, educators and veterinarians. We interpret evidence, offer expert opinions and testify in federal, state and local courts or administrative bodies.
