Dr. Katribe’s presentation, Disaster Response: Temporary Sheltering

Veterinary professionals are vital partners in our work to provide services to pets during and after an emergency. VDART was thrilled to partner with the VVMA to provide a virtual training webinar to Vermont’s veterinary community featuring a presentation from Dr. Erin Katribe, medical director for Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. The webinar (Disaster Response: Temporary Sheltering) highlighted the vital role that medical care and veterinary professionals play in any emergency response, using a distemper outbreak after Hurricane Harvey as an example. VDART also shared some important lessons that we learned in terms of working with veterinarians and providing for the medical needs of animals after the July flooding here in Vermont. And we also used this as an opportunity to recruit more partners in the veterinary profession to join one of our regional teams across the state. You can view the recording here:
