Pet CPR Class and Fundraiser
Do you know how to help your pet in an emergency? Join Paws n Claws 911 in Woodbury, on August 11 from noon to 4pm, for a highly interactive hands-on training to learn how to help your four-legged family members in a variety of emergency situations.
Intended for pet parents, pet care professionals and animal rescue volunteers, this class—which promises a “no-death-by-PowerPoint” experience—is taught by a seasoned pre-hospital care provider and educator with more than 25 years of experience administering these life-saving skills to two- and four-legged patients. No prior experience or training is needed.
During the four-hour class, attendees will practice emergency muzzling, canine and feline CPR, conscious and unconscious choking management, bleeding control and more.
The class is a fundraiser to benefit Brass City Rescue Alliance in Middlebury, a nonprofit animal rescue group that runs its own shelter and several feline foster homes that provide veterinary care, behavioral assessments and training before placing pets in their new forever homes. A portion of the $65 registration fee will be donated in support of its mission.
Pre-registration and pre-payment is required, and up to five seats can be reserved on one registration.
