Emergency Preparedness and Your Pets — Workshop Rescheduled for Jan. 12

unspecified

Please note that our Thursday, December 15 event has been cancelled due to weather. Join us on Thursday, January 12 for the next session.

A wildfire. A flood. A gas leak… What if you suddenly had to get out of your home? What equipment and supplies would you grab for your pets as you cram everyone in the car? Or as you board a bus with your neighbors to evacuate the area?

American Red Cross volunteer Carol Mitchell and local veterinarian Terri Jackson will join us for an interactive lecture and workshop to introduce important emergency response planning and skills. Join us on Thursday, January 12, 2017! This event will be held in the WHS Education Hall at 6 p.m.

These are free events, but a suggested donation of $5 is appreciated to support the ongoing PETtalks lecture series.
