PACC Emergency Preparedness for Pets presentation

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Interested in learning how to protect your pets before an emergency happens?  

“We want the members of the community to know what Pima County is prepared to do in an emergency situation,” said Adam Ricci, PACC field services manager. “And we need to provide information to people so they can take the best possible care of their pets, even in a crisis.” 

The Pima Animal Care Center is hosting an Emergency Preparedness for Pets presentation on Tuesday, March 14 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Abrams Public Health Center (3950 South Country Club, Room 3102).  

The free training will cover several scenarios that could affect Pima Co. residents and their pets, from natural disasters like wildfires and flooding to more common residential fires and power outages. 

Participants will learn how to create an emergency kit for their pets, as well as develop a contingency plan.  Also covered during the event will be what to expect in an emergency sheltering environment, how to keep pets healthy in temporary shelters, and even which vaccinations are required for shelter pets. 

Space is limited to 30 spots, and it is on a first come, first served basis -- so register now by RSVP to Adam Ricci at adam.ricci@pima.gov by Monday, March 13.
