Emergency Animal Sheltering Training.
Hosted by CVDART (Central Vermont Disaster Animal Response Team).
Saturday September 25th from 9-4, Barre, VT Open to all.
When a community disaster requires families to evacuate their homes VDART (Vermont Disaster Animal Response Team) steps in to provide emergency shelters for pets.
If you are interested in learning about this process you are welcome to attend a free EAS (Emergency Animal Sheltering) training, hosted by CVDART (Central Vermont DART)
This is a state wide event, open to both VDART members and interested members of the public. Previous sheltering experience is not required to attend.
Topics will include:
introduction to emergency sheltering
setting up a shelter
animal intake and release
basic vet needs during sheltering
We hope to have several dogs available as “models”.
This will be hands-on training.
We will provide more detailed information to registrants.
