If your best friend had an emergency, would you be prepared?
This class, developed by veterinarian Michael Lent* of Pantano Animal Clinic and the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, is more than just a program on how to conduct CPR or treat medical emergencies for cats and dogs. Participants will learn how to prevent emergencies; how to assist their vet in treating their pet; keep animals safe from local environmental hazards; avoid poisonous plants and household dangers; and identify and react to cruelty and neglect issues. And most importantly, lots of prevention!!
Registration fee of $50 includes a Pet Safety and First Aid manual, hands-on skills training with animal mannequins, video instruction, and certificate of completion. The four-hour course is open to individuals ages 15 and up.

Pictured: Brutus – #721866 – 4 Years Old – Shepherd Mix – Male
Brutus knows how to make a memorable first impression. Unrivaled in his huggability, Brutus loves nothing more than being close to you and will follow you around with baby eyes until you kneel down and give him a squeeze. Found wandering the streets in Globe, Brutus was picked up by a kind-hearted couple who searched everywhere for his owner. But no luck. During his 2-week stay, Brutus was an appreciative gentleman who enjoyed snuggling, napping and playing with the Dachshunds. Brutus’ new friends wanted him to find a better life and delivered him to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona for a second chance. Won’t you be the best friend Brutus has been waiting his entire life to find?
***Brutus has a waived adoption fee through August!
