Class Information for Summer Free: CARING FOR CATS AND DOGS, OUR EXTENDED FAMILY, IN CRISIS SITUATIONS, 3:00pm to 5:00pm, Tuesday July 24, RH Johnson Lecture Hall. (SF201)
So many of us have pets that are part of our family. Can you recognize the signs of pet illness? Would you know what to do with your pet(s) in an emergency? Where would your pet go if you had to be hospitalized? Chance Shelter staff will share what you can do to help make the lives of your pets better. They will teach how recognize the signs of pet illness, choosing a new pet, basic CPR and how to help your aging pets. They will share available resources, and how you can help your peers by becoming a foster home in our Neighbor-To-Neighbor Program. If you have a pet, you will benefit from this class.
