37. Animals in Disasters Webinar

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or ASPCA, provides disaster services for animals throughout the country.  Just a few years ago Clark County utilized their services when a law enforcement raid made our Humane Society Serving Clark County responsible for over 250 dogs seized from a single location.  This was in addition to our usual overcrowded animal shelter population!

On Tuesday, October 20th the ASPCA will offer a webinar entitled Animals in Disasters: A Community Preparedness Checklist.  Presented by Dr. Dick Green, their Senior Director of Disaster Response, this one hour webinar will discuss the potential magnitude of the problem and what the ASPCA proposes to do about it.  Anyone may register to participate, but if you are unable to be around between 3 and 4 PM next Tuesday, those registered will be given a link to hear the recorded webinar at a later time.
