EMERGENCY SERVICES

Pet First Aid

The American Red Cross of the Quad Cities Area, the Quad City Animal Welfare Center, and Petco have teamed up to offer a Pet First Aid class for the Quad City area community.  The Pet First Aid class is designed to protect both pet owners and their pets from further harm, injury, or suffering during emergencies by teaching prompt, effective actions and care that will safeguard the life of an injured pet.  Participants will learn when and where to call for help, how to apply first aid techniques, and learn emergency actions steps that can be used in almost any emergency.  Pet First Aid classes are ideal for pet owners, humane societies, and local emergency care personnel.

A special thanks to Petco for providing their support of this program.  Petco provided a grant that was used to purchase dog and cat manikins and other training materials.
