About this Event

Join NOLA Ready and the Louisiana State Animal Rescue Team (LSART) for a special full day Household Pet Evacuation and Pet Shelter Volunteer training.

The training is open to animal care organizations, veterinarians, veterinary students, veterinary technicians, and any pet lover who is passionate about volunteering to help animals in a disaster.

The training includes:

  • 4-hour Pet Evacuation Training: The course covers how to set up and operate a pet registration and loading station at a Parish Pickup Point (PPP) or other designated evacuation site in a community to assist with the evacuation of household pets belonging to residents without means of private evacuation transportation.
  • 4-hour Pet Shelter Training: The course covers the set up and operation of a temporary emergency pet shelter in a community. The goal of this course is to train volunteers for the operation of a co-located household pet shelter, share lessons learned from past sheltering operations to encourage pet owners to evacuate and take their pets with them, and to preserve the human animal bond.

If you have an interest in animal well-being related to emergencies or disasters and a willingness to serve, this training is for you!

Training only open to adults, 18+.

8 hours total CE for DVMS, RVTS, CAETS

FOOD: Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
