PASO ROBLES, CA – What would you do with your pet if you had to evacuate because of a wildfire, earthquake, flood, or other disasters? What if you are away from your pet when disaster strikes? The North San Luis Obispo County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is offering Disaster Preparedness for Companion Animals, a class where you can learn how to prepare your pets for a disaster. Preparing before a disaster gives you the knowledge and confidence to survive and recover.
The class teaches you how to prepare your pet for disaster, build a disaster kit for your pet, and develop a disaster evacuation plan. You will also learn how to provide pet first-aid and help your pet cope with disaster-related anxiety or depression. Dan Jones, DVM will be the instructor, and will also provide ample time after the class to answer your questions.
Disaster Preparedness for Companion Animals will be presented at the Paso Robles Public Safety Center, 900 Park Street, in downtown Paso Robles, on Saturday, May 6, 2023, from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm.
